Fulford has the eyes for the land of today’s North Miami Beach along with his exploration despite the mangroves, lowland and marshes in the area of the Atlantic side – the Big Snake Creek(later Oleta Park). In 1980’s, farm were established near the Oleta Park and the area was named after a Seminole word Ojus which means plenty by a farmer, Albert Fitch. It was then in 1900’s when miming flourished and discovered that the rock of Ojus was ideal for road building. The continuous mining created lakes in the neighborhood. A man by the name of Lafe Allen, a former newspaper owner, and associates came to Florida and purchased 557 acres of land. They planned a perfect city of residential and commercial area with wide avenues which was then realized to be the Fulford Boulevard (now known as NE 172nd Street) and and Flagler Boulevard (now known as NE 19th Avenue. 1920’s was a significant year for the city for the Florida land boom.
