Miami Beach Florida has surged in popularity as people and businesses
have begun seeking refuge in the first class North Miami Beach hotels
and restaurants to get away from the hustle, bustle and overcrowding
of her legendary counterpart - South Miami Beach!
Captain William H. Fulford first saw North Miami Beach while patroling
the Atlantic during the Spanish-American War. Utilizing the Homestead
Act of 1890, he homesteaded a 160 acre grant he received from President
Grover Cleveland. In 1917, newspaper owner Lefe Allen and Joshua
Flaynolds purchased Captain Fulford's original grant plus additional
property with the idea of developing and selling lots. Mr. Allen
made plans for a "perfect city" calling for 80 foot residential
streets and 100 and 125 foot business thoroughfares. Today, the
city's generous street layout remains exactly as the pioneer first
envisioned it. In 1927, the area was incorporated as the City of
Fulford. However, in 1931 the state legislature authorized a new
charter for the city. More beach property was annexed and the name
was changed from Fulford to North Miami Beach.
From a population of 2,129 in 1938, North Miami Beach is now home
to over 40,000 people.
