a. In 1924, James H. Nunnally, president of the Bay Shore Investment Company, envisioned an exclusive residential neighborhood overlooking Biscayne Bay. The result is one of Miami's most intact historic neighborhoods and the city's best surviving example of a Land Boom–era suburb. A wealth of Mediterranean Revival, Art Deco, and vernacular
style houses line Morningside's wide, tree-lined boulevards. The district encompasses buildings designed by more than 40 local architects, and is equally significant for the quality of its landscape design, which features many mature tropical trees and plants. The Morningside Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
