Miami History Podcast - Episode 4

The fourth episode of the Miami History Podcast begins the story of the Brickell family. This is a two-part series explains what brought the family to the banks of the Miami River and their impact on the development of the City of Miami. William Brickell was considered a soldier of fortune who traveled the world to find his fortune. During his travels, he met his wife Mary Bulmer. By the time the couple arrived in South Florida, they had six children and added two more after settling along the south bank of the Miami River. The family ran a trading post while accumulating land around South Florida. Listen to part-one of this two-part series to understand what brought the family to the banks of the Miami River and how the family built their land empire when the area was merely a scarcely populated frontier.
