Fisher Island Miami History
The community wasn’t originally an island. The area was the tip of a peninsula in Miami Beach. What separated it from the mainland was the construction of an access channel to the port of Miami. In 1919 businessman Carl Fisher purchased the island from African-American millionaire A. Dorsey and expanded the island’s surface. The island was renamed Fisher Island, after Carl Fisher, who sold it a few years later to William Kissam Vanderbilt. Carl Fisher is said to have traded the island for Vanderbilt’s huge yacht. The phrase “My island for your yacht” feeds the folklore of the negotiation. Vanderbilt built a mansion on the island (nowadays a 5-star hotel) and kept it as a private property until the 1940s, when he decided to sell it. The island then passed through several hands until a more intense urban real estate project began in the 1980s, transforming the island into what it is today.
Over the years the different owners kept growing the land, bringing more sand to it (some from Bahamas) and making the island bigger. in the beginning the island had only a few acres and today it has almost 500 acres.
The Fisher Island Club
Guests of Fisher Island may stay at a world-class resort conceived to satisfy the most high expectations. Fisher Island Club was once the the private winter estate of the William K. Vanderbilt II family, the island’s luxurious guest accommodations are an oasis of beauty, comfort, and extraordinary style with a touch of old-world charm.
