BUENA VISTA EAST was designated a historic district in 1988. The following information appears on the Miami Historic Preservation website:
"In the 1890s, Buena Vista was a small village whose founding and growth paralleled Miami’s. During the Land Boom of the 1920s, the area was developed as the Biltmore and Shadowlawn subdivisions. Originally home to many “cracker” immigrants from Georgia and North Carolina, the neighborhood soon became popular with the owners of nearby businesses. The houses reflect their original owners’ rising social status and include fine examples of Mediterranean Revival, Mission, Craftsman, and Art Deco style residences."
