Just like the Atlantis on Brickell is a notable building in Brickell, historic landmarks such as the Miami Circle alsopopulate the area. Known as one of the most archaeologically significant finds in North America, The Miami Circle is a prehistoric landmark that wasn’t discovered until 1998. Its discovery was prompted by a routine archaeological survey mandated by Miami-Dade County. The site was home to an apartment complex at 401 Brickell Avenue that had existed on the property since the 1870’s. When the site was purchased for more than $8 million dollars by developer Michael Baumann, it was intended to become a luxury condominium building. However, the discovery of 24 holes cut into limestone bedrock, which formed the perfect circle, halted construction in favor of persevering the prehistoric structure.
Archaeologists believe that Miami Circle—also known as the Miami River Circle, BrickellPoint or The Miami Circle at Brickell Point Site—predates other known permanent settlements on the East Coast. Additionally, they believe that the Tequesta Indians built the structure as a mark of their capital. Experts estimate that the Miami Circle is between 1700 and 2000 years old. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and on January 16, 2009, it was dedicated as a National Historic Landmark.
Currently the Historical Museum of Southern Florida is offering tours of the Miami Circle as a part of its 44-year lease of the site, which began in March 2008.
