    The Barnacle Society w John Palenchar Volunteer & Past-President | Get to know the history & how they support the Barnacle State Park

    Just off Main Highway in downtown Coconut Grove awaits a jewel from a quieter time. The Barnacle, the 19th century home of Ralph Middleton Munroe, one of Coconut Grove’s most influential and charming residents, is one of the oldest houses in Miami-Dade County. Munroe purchased 40 acres of bayfront land in 1886 for $400 plus one of his sailboats, Kingfish, valued at an additional $400. His boathouse was built in 1887. The family lived at The Barnacle until 1973 when it became a state park. As a seaman, naturalist and photographer, Commodore Munroe cherished the natural world around him; it is a fitting legacy that we, too, can share at Barnacle Historic State Park.
