Homestead was booming in 1926, along with all of South Florida. Polk’s published its first directory for the Homestead area due to the demand for such a guide. Because of the real estate crash, beginning in 1927, there would not be another directory published until the 1940s. This directory is invaluable for those studying the early history of this area as it covers the area from Goulds south to Florida City and west into the Redlands.
