The ongoing exhibit of Coral Gables history in the Betty and L. D. Pankey Gallery and Coral Gables Galleries — Creating the Dream — includes a tour every Saturday at 1pm.

An introductory exhibition about Coral Gables’ founder and developer, George Merrick, his family and other visionaries who helped him turn his dream of a place where “your castles in Spain are made real” into reality.

This exhibit addresses local history, including pioneer life, the Florida Land Boom Architecture, urban planning and development. Curated by Arva Moore Parks, designed by Tom Graboski and fabricated by SFY Architectural Signs and Displays, this weekly tour and permanent exhibit is a must-see for locals and visits alike.
