Members of The Barnacle Society help preserve the Historic State Park and receive access and perks to special events.
Every little bit helps us keep this hidden gem in its preserved natural state and open to the public.
There are many ways you can support The Barnacle Society. From hurricane cleanup crews to our annual event staff, we could always use another helping hand.
The Barnacle, built in 1891, offers a glimpse of Old Florida during The Era of the Bay. Situated on the shore of Biscayne Bay, this was the home of Ralph Middleton Munroe, one of Coconut Grove´s most charming and influential pioneers. A walk into the park through its tropical hardwood hammock harkens each guest to imagine Miami’s original landscape in the 1920s.
Throughout the year, The Barnacle Society sponsors numerous events, including moonlight concerts and outdoor films, to raise funds to support this lovely Historic State Park. We invite you to join us at one of these events or simply come sit with us in a rocking chair on the spacious front porch and savor the splendor and solitude that define The Barnacle.
As you consider your gifts, we hope you will think about the special treasure we have at The Barnacle – a glimpse into our past reflecting a quieter, gentler time. Please know that no matter the amount, your assistance is valued and appreciated. We invite you to visit us and enjoy a respite from the hectic world around us!
