Question of the Day
“In the the early days, my grandmother would tell me about the rattlesnakes that were on the property. They had rattlesnake skin they would show off to guests,” said Hershberger, who lives in Hollywood.
The land behind the house, still filled with trees, was so expansive that it once stretched east to U.S. 441 and the Golden Glades Interchange and covered nearly 1,000 acres, according to the city.
“That land was unincorporated; there was nothing out there - just barren land. You have to think of the area before (Interstate 95) or the Turnpike and all the residences,” said Hershberger.
Miami Gardens hopes to include Hershberger in a larger historic education series that would feature displays from the University of Miami’s Collaborative Archive from the African Diaspora and presentations from city founders and former council members.
“The family took a risk to settle there and to start a life there coming from Italy as immigrants, and they were successful in that location and that legacy is left in Miami Gardens,” said Hershberger.
