When this property was built in 1904, Homestead was an emerging town a new frontier for farmers and adventurers. The advent of the railroad, and later US1, caused a boom in the 1920s until the dawn of the great depression in 1929.
This versatile building has served many purposes over the years, including the town's first hotel, the first merchantile store, the first U.S. post office, the first library and the first boarding house.
Offering all the authentic charm and atmosphere of by-gone days, it stands as a living archive of Homestead’s past. The rooms are nicely appointed and the bar and reception area are spacious and decorated appropriately in the pioneer period.
The Hotel Redland is an excellent choice for those wishing to unwind after the tour, or to overnight before visiting Everglades National Park for a day or two.
