Overtown is one of Miami’s earliest historically black communities. The area’s first settlers were black workmen who followed the FEC railroad south as it was extended from Palm Beach to Miami. The area we now know as Overtown was originally called Colored Town and was designated by Henry Flagler and Julia Tuttle as the location for black laborers and their families to live.
