Scope and content
Research, including photographic prints and negatives, on Dade County and South Florida, particularly: Miami River, Dade County Schools, South Florida archaeology, Tropical Audubon Society, Arch Creek and local designation reports and National Register nominations.
Arch Creek papers Include applications to the National Register of Historic Places Inventory; for a Dade County Historic Site designation; and for a state archaeological site listing. Also includes photocopies of reports by Robert Carr and Dan D. Laxson. A substantial though unsorted collection of editorials, news articles and other writings document several attempts to save the property for public use; the establishment of a park and museum, and efforts to restore the area's native vegetation.
