Richard is one of our most engaged and active HistoryMaker members. He was born in Homestead and moved to Kendall at an early age. Just out of high school he earned his first real estate license while attending and graduating from Miami-Dade “Community” College. He then earned a Bachelor of Business Administration majoring in Real Estate and a Master of Public Administration, both from Florida International University. For the past 25 years, Richard has owned a real estate consulting firm specializing in governmental land acquisition for roadways, transit, parks, everglades restoration and other public purposes. Richard also serves as a member of numerous community and industry-based Boards and Committees, all with the purpose of giving back, paying forward and inspiring futures.
Richard was kind enough to share his HistoryMiami story below, enjoy!
I heard about HistoryMiami Museum, then called the Historical Museum of Southern Florida, thirty-five years ago when I worked for the Florida Department of Transportation and our office was a block north of the museum. I like to give back to the community, supporting local non-profits by becoming a member at more than an entry level. Currently, I am very comfortable as a HistoryMaker member, but I also plan to do more to support the museum in the future.
I wish I had more time to spend in the Archives and Research Center. I make time for my absolute favorite thing, which is the City Tours with Dr. Paul George. Every tour with him is an amazing experience, but I have gone to tours with other guides and have never been disappointed. I love all the tours. A highlight for me was the Moon Over Miami River Tour, which I am about to do again. It was wonderful to hear Dr. George’s perspective about the bridges since I have been part of the replacement of almost every one of them, including the Miami Avenue, Brickell Avenue, 2nd Avenue, 27th Avenue and the 1st and 5th Street bridges. I have to say that another great aspect of the museum is the staff, especially Dr. Paul George, Hana Squires who manages the tours, as well as Leana Cianfoni and Hilda Masip. I am very appreciative of what they do.
I am very happy with the latest exhibition Gridiron Glory. I am a big football fan. I am looking forward to my second favorite event, the Miami International Map Fair. I love antique maps and I am a collector. I have maps going back to the days of Henry Flagler, showing his plans to build his railroad to Cuba and the Bahamas. I love buying maps of Miami when it is referred to as Fort Dallas and maps that show Dade County extending past Lake Okeechobee on the eastern side. I use the maps to amaze my friends with the extent of Dade County in the past.
When I think about the exhibitions, all I can say is keep up the good work, but if I could ask for one thing in the future, it is an exhibition dedicated to the influence of the railroad, because rail lines were what put Florida’s cities on the map. The evolution of the railroad and its technologies were phenomenal and a fascinating subject.
