Formerly a sparsely settled area, Opa-Locka was born from the vision of Glenn Curtiss in 1926. Curtiss, together with the architect Bernhardt Miller, designed a One Thousand and One Nights-themed city, which now holds one of the largest collections of Moorish Revival architecture in the Western Hemisphere, with twenty buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Alex Van Mecl, Founder of Discover Opa-Locka leads a walking tour of Opa-Locka, exploring the city's unique architectural heritage and its fascinating history and culture.
