::  William Wagner House
Lummus Park, 404 NW 3rd Street
Years Built: 1855-1858
Builder: William Wagner
Date Designated: 1984

a. A unique reflection of Miami's antebellum era, the William Wagner House is the oldest known house in Miami-Dade County. This traditional frontier home was built of hand-hewn lumber with mortise and tenon joints; milled lumber was later added to the exterior. Wagner, one of the area's first permanent residents, operated a sutler's store near the original location of Fort Dallas. In 1979, the building was relocated to Lummus Park, which is also the site of the relocated barracks building from Fort Dallas.
