History Chronology Perrine - Cutler Ridge Gallery Historical Images

Google Map of Perrine

The Perrine-Cutler Ridge area has a fairly rich and hard working history which is explored on the historical background pages.There are two interviews or oral histories, one from a longtime black resident and one from a longtime white resident. They paint a fairly accurate picture of the area from the early forties until the time of the interviews which were done in 2000. I attended the school above in the early sixties, the middle two-story building is the original schoolhouse. Sadly it was demolished and rebuilt at it's current location on Richmond Drive. We, here in South Dade, have a bad habit of destroying our history in the guise of "progress". If I can preserve a little of that history on these pages, it will be a worthwhile endeavor. This will be an ongoing effort, so please return when the spirit moves you...
