Miami-Dade County

Year Founded: 1949


Medley was named for Sylvester Medley, who settled here in 1905. He farmed in the town until his death in 1950. His name was chosen by a vote of the citizens, not only to honor the man who had brought his cow up the creek 45 years before, but also because it was a pretty name.
