Buena Vista is one of the top neighborhoods to visit while in Miami, which is in the every beautiful Miami-Dade County, Florida. What once was a pineapple plantation in Buena Vista is now the city center as T.V. Moore had planned. Moore began is plantation in the late 1800’s as the lure of tropical fruits brought people to the area and as the railroad brought in more people the result brought more business for the area. As Buena Vista grew by leaps and bounds Moore turned his plantation into the district center, which included his own furniture business, a hotel, a church, a post office, and even a grocery store. The boom that occurred during the 1910’s to the 1920’s resulted in Buena Vista becoming incorporated in 1924 and became added to the city of Miami in 1925.
