The third episode of the Miami History Channel will provide the story of the people and events that led to the incorporation of the City of Miami in the middle part of the decade. The agreement between Flagler, Tuttle and the Brickells set off a series of events that marked the beginning of the Magic City.
Episode three is a continuation of the series called “The Decades”. This episode will begin to align the time period covered with a true “decade”. The 1890s will start an evolution that will shape the area of Dade County and Miami into a major metropolitan area in the United States.
The outline for Episode 3 is as follows:
Scene 1: Early Communities of Southeast Florida
Scene 2: Julia Tuttle
Scene 3: Henry Flagler
Scene 4: Building of Miami
Scene 5: Incorporation of Miami
Scene 6: Camp Miami & Fort Brickell
Scene 7: Yellow Fever
The decade of the 1890s was arguably Miami’s most transitional and important decade. It was the time of the formal establishment of the area as the City of Miami. It was also a time when many of the mover and shakers of the early twentieth century would arrive and make their mark on the developing area.
