Julia Tuttle, Community Developer (1849–1898) In 1891, Julia Tuttle moved to the remote area where the Miami River meets Biscayne Bay, having inherited land from her father and having purchased more property north of the river. She convinced Henry Flagler to extend his railroad south to the river and gave him land to develop the area into a modern city, soon to become the City of Miami. She is probably the only woman in the U.S. to found a major city. FLOR500, Garden 466
