The Village of Coconut Grove was established in 1873 and is Miami’s original neighborhood, predating the City of Miami by nearly 25 years. Throughout 2023, the Coconut Grove Business Improvement District has strived to celebrate the neighborhood and the still evident and living history of early African American and Bahamian cultures. With special events, history-based tours in partnership with HistoryMiami, family-friendly activations and more, the Coconut Grove BID continues to celebrate 150 years of the Grove and understands the business sense of maintaining the rich history of the neighborhood.
