Wednesday. 5/20/2015 - Village officials, neighbors and the "Friends of Harry Troeger" gathered to honor Harry Troger with the unveiling of a street sign in his memory.
Harry lived in his Palmetto Bay home for 60
years. He will be remembered by neighbors and friends as a pioneer who
built his home by hand with timber and coral rock - and a demolition.
The sign designates the street on which Mr. Troger built his home and lived. See the Miami Herald article of November 21, 2014, by Melhor Marie Leonor, Friends of Harry wake up to find Troeger cabin reduced to ‘rubble’ for back story on this home and the preservation efforts of the "Friends of Harry."
Amy Creekmur, a member of Friends of Harry, recognized that “(Harry) was green before green architecture existed…..”
Harry died in 2008 at age 92.
