This modest Frame Vernacular residence was home to one of Miami's most prominent black businessmen and philanthropists. Dana A. Dorsey helped organize South Florida's first black bank and amassed a real estate empire while developing Overtown, the center of Miami's historic African-American community.
The Black Archives, History and Research Foundation of South Florida, Inc. reconstructed this building in 1995.
The D. A. Dorsey was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
It is open the public by appointment.
