Dr. William A. Chapman House

Dr. William A. Chapman House

Dr. William Chapman, one of Miami's first black physicians, was known for his educational programs on communicable diseases. Built during Miami's Land Boom years, this two-and-one-half-story Masonry Vernacular house is the most elaborate residence surviving in Overtown, the center of Miami's historic African-American community.
