Miami Beach, Florida, Estados Unidos

Historical Context The Lummus brothers’ Ocean Beach Realty Company platted the Ocean Beach Addition 3 subdivision in February 1914, before Miami Beach had even become a town. In 1916, with the Lummuses in financial straits, developer Carl G. Fisher and his colleagues formed the Miami Ocean View Company and took over much of the Lummus property between 5th and 11th Streets.1 The new company filled in much of the land, put in water mains and sewers, paved the streets, planted trees, and built several houses on its mostly-vacant land to promote the sale of lots.2
The subject house was built circa 1920 on Lot 12 of Block 70 in the Ocean Beach Addition 3 subdivision. No original building records or plans for the house survive in the Miami Beach Building Department. Some of its history can be traced from other sources, but there are some inconsistencies and unanswered questions. For one thing, the system of street addresses was arbitrary at first, and the house on this lot was identified as 915 Jefferson Avenue until the mid1920s, and thereafter as 927 Jefferson.3
The earliest documentation of the house is the Sanborn Fire Insurance Map of January 1921, which shows it as a 1½ story “CB” (concrete block) dwelling with one-story front and rear porches and a one-story rear garage. The architect is unknown, but this verifies that the house was completed by 1921 as a single-family residence. The only other structures on this block at that time were a similar house next door on Lot 13, and a two-story frame house on Lot 10. Both were demolished in the 1960s. 1 Howard Kleinberg, Miami Beach: A History; Centennial Press, Miami, 1994; pp. 53-4. 2 Realty ads: Miami Metropolis; March 21, 1921; January 7, 1922 et al. 3 Sanborn Fire Insurance maps, Polks’s City Directories, various years; Building Permit Card, 1924; City Atlas, 1935.
II. Ownership The first deed record for Lot 12 is dated December 21, 1921, when the Miami Ocean View Company sold it to Peter J. McCormick of Suffolk County, Massachusetts.4 Deeds, of course, refer only to the lot and do not indicate whether any building is present on it, but the earlier Sanborn map confirms that a house was here by that time, so it was probably built by the Company. Oddly, a week before the sale, a notice had appeared in the Miami Herald that, “Mrs. Peter McCormick of Boston has opened up her beautiful home at 915 Jefferson Avenue. Mr. McCormick will come at Christmas.”5
In 1919, the Herald mentioned Peter McCormick, identified as a Harvard professor, as one of four tourists who landed a 350-pound shark while fishing off Miami Beach.6 Apparently he soon got into realty speculation in the new city: on January 11, 1921, Peter McCormick bought Lot 13 of this block, next door to the subject property.7 He sold it to an Amelia Wheeler in November 1922.
In the meantime, Peter and Mabel McCormick apparently spent only one winter in the subject house on Lot 12. On March 14, 1922, they sold it to Arthur G. Norris8 and his wife Eda (sometimes misspelled Edna) from Chicago. Mr. Norris was a 36-year-old stock broker who had emigrated from Canada as a child.9 After Eda Norris died while in Chicago in 1927, Mr. Norris married his second wife Alice in October 1928. Arthur Norris himself died while in Chicago in July 1932, at age 46.10
In subsequent Polk’s City Directories, the house stood vacant or had various individual owners until it became a rooming house during the housing 4 Dade County Deed Book 281, Page 357. 5 “About the Beach,” Miami Herald, Dec. 14, 1921; p.6. 6 Miami Herald, March 3, 1919. 7 Dade County Deeds: Book 244, Page 310; Book 281, Page 357. 8 Dade County Deed Book 292, Page 53. 9 U.S. Census, 1920. 10 Ancestry Plus: Birth, Marriage & Death Records.
shortage following World War II. The 1947 directory first identifies it as Sytten’s Guest House, operated by Harry and Dora Sytten. From 1955 to 1959 it was the Chicago Guest House, advertising “furnished rooms,” run by Bessie Smith. In 1960 it was Min’s Guest House, run by Mrs. Minnie Samuels, and in 1964, Sacks’ Guest House, run by Samuel Sacks.
III. The House Unfortunately a lack of early records or photographs makes it difficult to track the structural history of the house. The 1921 Sanborn map describes it as concrete block, but the 1935 City Atlas has it color-coded as frame-stucco. The footprint itself has changed little over the years since the 1921 map.
A newspaper ad for a “Miami Beach Home” from March 192111 gives 915 Jefferson Avenue as the address for inquiries, but it may or may not have been this house that was for sale. The ad describes a “brand-new 8-room semibungalow, completely furnished,” with five bedrooms, front and rear screened porches, a garage, and a 300-gallon rainwater tank. (The Building Department’s first record for the house on Lot 12 was its connection to the city sewer system in 1924.) This may well be describing the subject house, but there is no proof.
The only major alterations to the house listed on the Building Permit Card were two apartment units added in 1948 for $7000 total, and a $500 remodel of the second floor in 1951, “making a duples (sic) 1 upstairs & 1 downstairs. Work on front house or (of?) main building.” No plans were found for either of these projects, but both are attributed to architect Lester Avery. Little information is available on Avery, but he was active in Miami Beach from 1930 through the 1950s, designing small residences and apartment buildings including 321, 650 and 651 Jefferson Avenue and 719, 737, 765, and 1300 Lenox Avenue.
11 Miami Herald, March 23, 1921; Miami Metropolis, March 24, 1921.
As seen today, the house is of unusual design in Vernacular style; whether CBS or frame-stucco would require examination of the walls. The west elevation facing the street is a 1½ story front gable with raised stucco banding resembling half-timber construction. The roof has exposed wood beams and corner brackets and is supported by two square pillars of stucco. The central doorway is flanked by windows that are now six-over-six sash type, but the Planning Department database from 1989 describes the windows as wood casements at that time. There is another bank of windows over the door.
The most distinguishing feature of the house is its multiple-gable roof. Behind the front section with its own gable, the house rises to two stories, first with a single end-gable roof, then a slightly wider pair of end-gable roofs. All roofs are of asphalt tile. Smaller shed roofs are seen at the rear of the house. The rear garage structure is not visible from the street. The original garage occupied the southeast corner of the lot.
In 1969 a proposal to demolish the house and construct an 18-unit apartment house in its place did not transpire, and the house remains today as a Contributing building in the National Register and Flamingo Park Historic Districts. While it is difficult to trace its structural history, the house has its roots in the earliest days of Miami Beach development, and, illustrating another chapter of the City’s history, evolved from a single-family residence to a rooming house during the Postwar housing shortage.
