This collection of seven houses that stand on pilings out in Biscayne Bay has been around since the early ‘30s. You can view them, way out in the distance, from the southern shore of the Bill Baggs park, or take a boat tour out there with the illustrious historian Dr Paul George. In 2003, the nonprofit Stiltsville Trust was set up by the National Parks Service to rehabilitate the buildings into as-yet-unknown facilities; proposals include a National Parks Service visitor center, artist-in-residence colony or community center. Not much work seems to have progressed towards this idea, but if you’d like more information, check www.stiltsvilletrust.org.
