    Deering Estate at CutlerDeering Estate at Cutler Miami, Florida
    The Charles Deering Estate is also known as the Deering Estate at Cutler, and was the former home of Charles Deering in Florida, until his passing in 1927 at the estate. Deering would live on the 444 acre site for five years, starting in 1922, with a three floor wooden house that had been constructed in 1900, and called the Richmond Cottage, and a three floor stone mansion, with other structures located on the property that would become auxiliary buildings for the estate; which was incorporated into the village of Palmetto Bay, Florida. These grounds would include what had been thought to be the biggest virgin coastal tropical hardwood hammock in the country, with the estate becoming the property of the state in 1985. The house and estate had been featured numerous times in the old TV series, Miami Vice, and the starting point for the Amazing Race All-Stars in 2007. Charles was born in Paris, Maine, in 1852, the son of William Deering, the founder of Deering Harvester Company and the brother of millionaire industrialist, James Deering; and he is remembered as a businessman and philanthropist. Charles graduated from the Naval Academy and serve in the Navy until 1881, when he would become secretary of his dad's company that merged with McCormick Harvesting Machine Company and would become International Harvester in 1902. After that merger, Charles became the chairman of the board, before dying at his estate in 1927.
