For the Julia Tuttle Causeway, see Interstate 195 (Florida).
Because Julia Tuttle influenced Henry Flagler to extend his railroad to Miami and planned its development, she is called the mother of the city of Miami.
Julia DeForest Tuttle, (born Julia DeForest Sturtevant; January 22, 1849 – September 14, 1898) was an entrepreneur, citrus farmer and businesswoman who was largely responsible for, and the original owner of, the land upon which Miami, Florida, was built. For this reason, she is called the “Mother of Miami.”"
