Curtiss Mansion

Curtiss Mansion Inc. (CMI), a Florida-registered 501(c)3 was established in 1998 to preserve the home and legacy of legendary hero Glenn Hammond Curtiss, a designated site on the National Register of Historic Places Our mission is “To restore and operate the home and gardens of Glenn Hammond Curtiss, visionary aviator, inventor and developer, as an interactive technology-based educational center focusing on the inventions and contributions of Curtiss and other unsung American Heroes, and as an architecturally unique, income-generating venue for celebrating life’s milestones.”

With the help of the State of Florida Division of Historical Resources, Miami-Dade County, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Rebeca Sosa, the Metropolitan Planning Organization, the Florida Municipal Insurance Trust, the Miami Springs Historical Society, the City of Miami Springs and countless private and corporate donors, the Mansion doors reopened to the public in 2012. After 17 years of heroic grassroots effort, including raising several million dollars twice (original pledges were lost as a result of 9/11), the Mansion became available for historic, cultural, educational, recreational, social, civic and other community uses. Under terms of the current Management Agreement, CMI is tasked with sustaining fundraising efforts, maintenance, daily operations and oversight of the Mansion and all of its activities.
