The Trapp Homestead, also known as the Caleb Trapp House, is believed to be the oldest standing masonry home in Miami-Dade County. Located in the historic neighborhood of Coconut Grove in Miami, The Trapp Homestead was constructed in 1887 out of locally quarried oolite limestone. The history of The Trapp Homestead was preserved in 1994 when it was inducted into the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Upon the sale of the home in 2006, the new homeowners partnered with FAIA historic preservationist architect Richard Heisenbottle and developed a plan to restore the home to its historic significance and build an appropriate addition for the family’s private use. In accordance with modern codes, minor zoning variances were acquired to accommodate the height of the home’s crow’s nest and the plans were approved by the City of Miami’s Historic and Environmental Preservation Board in the Fall of 2006.
