The Family Homestead “Grandpa’s House” Begins Renovations
On historically designated Charles Avenue (formerly Evangelist Street), the iconic Stirrup House, the home Coconut Grove pioneer and developer E.W.F. Stirrup built himself in 1899, is getting a major face lift. In collaboration with a local development group, Stirrup House will soon be open to visitors.
Both Charles Avenue and Stirrup House have been designated Historic Sites by the City of Miami. Until the mid-1980s, “Grandpa’s House” served as a primary residence for the first thru forth generation Stirrup family members at some point in their lives. E.W.F Stirrup lived there until his death in 1957.
This marks an exciting new chapter in the Stirrup family story. We will be posting updates on progress in the coming weeks and months.
