MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It’s been around here in South Florida since the 1930’s.

Most people have heard of it but not many have seen it, at least not up close.

CBS4’s Rudabeh Shahbazi joined historian Dr. Paul George for a tour of Stiltsville to find out how it started, how it almost ended and where things stand now.
