Help pave the way
for future generations... While honoring those that made a difference in our
The GFWC Coral Gables Woman’s Club proudly announces plans for a brick walkway to honor those who have been a part of our our historic legacy. This wonderful landmark site will have a beautiful American flag flying high, as a centerpiece tribute to the memorial brick walkway.
The bricks will be situated at the entrance of the “Grande Dame,” edifice, completed in 1936, on land donated by the city for the purpose of building the first permanent library. The coral rock, excavated from the City’s quarry, will meld with the memorial bricks to provide multi-generational remembrance.
The adjoining north wing was designated for the Clubhouse members who organized and operated the library since 1927.
This building is "one of a kind" and has been faithfully preserved as an artistic architectural artifact of the city.
The City of Coral Gables recognizes the traditions that are interwoven through our history and continue their valuable support to preserve this honored legacy.
As of March 27, 1990, the building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Brick Memorial will consist of inlaid 4x8 & 8x8 & 12x12 bricks, each one bearing the name and details of a beloved Past President of our club, a member, so someone who has rented one or both of our historic halls to celebrate a wedding, anniversary, or other special event. Your honorary brick will be carefully placed alongside the many others who have been a part of our 100 year history.
Each Brick is professionally engraved with time proven materials designed to weather the elements. The 4x8 Brick donation is $125 and the larger 8x8 Brick is $250. The 12x12 brick is $450. Your donation and order details can be provided by completing the form below.
Feel free to contact our "Buy A Brick Program” coordinator, and club Historian, Robin Burr, via text or phone 305-794-1541.
Thank you for our support
