Historic preservation efforts in Coral Gables have a brand new look, thanks to a recently launched marketing campaign from the 23-year-old Historic Preservation Association of Coral Gables (HPACG). The association is non-profit corporation founded in 1991 that is dedicated to the preservation, restoration and use of historic properties in Coral Gables.
The new marketing campaign, while embracing digital initiatives, nevertheless takes its visual cue from one of the signature decorative components of 1920s architecture — the handmade tiles that graced the walls, floors, doorways, stairways and fountains of Mediterranean Revival-style homes in Florida, especially Coral Gables and Palm Beach.
This dedication to historic preservation was nowhere more apparent than during a recent party at the 1926 historically designated Italian Village home of Coral Gables residents Ernest Coscia and Tom Reardon, where the campaign was introduced to close to 100 guests.
Neither homeownership nor historic designation of a property is required to become a member of HPACG, just a strong desire to preserve the rich history of Coral Gables.
