The Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources’ Office of Historic Preservation is slated to launch the Migrant Farmworker Historic Context Study, funded by an Underrepresented Communities Grant (URC) from the Historic Preservation Fund administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior.

Recognizing that Miami-Dade County’s agricultural heritage is far-reaching and has been at the core of its growth and development since its initial settlement, the project will explore the history and places associated with Migrant Farmworker communities.

Sites explored will include agricultural resources, businesses, grocers, restaurants, schools, community centers and gathering places established to meet the needs of the Migrant Farmworker community countywide.

The project will highlight vital historic resources reflective of the story of this significant community. It will result in a nomination for listing on the National Register of Historic Places for at least one of the identified resources.

Stay up to date on the launch of the Migrant Farmworker Context Study and how you can contribute.

For more information about the URC grant program, visit the National Park Service website.
