Venetian Pool of Coral Gables
South Florida

The spectacular Venetian Pool in Coral Gables, Florida was orignally a quarry for mining the limestone used to build homes in the area. In 1924 artist-architect Denman Fink transformed the quarry into a swimming pool that resembles a natural lagoon in a Venetian setting. His design included bridges, towers, a casino, and lush landscaping. Owner George Merrick sold the Venetian pool to the city of Coral Gables in 1927. The pool was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 20, 1981.
