Shenandoah was one of the first neighborhoods in the City of Miami. It was established in 1919 by developers from Virginia, and hence the name. The “Shenandoah” area was farmland and piney woods until the real-estate boom of the 1920s, when one residential subdivision after another bearing the name “Shenandoah” as part of its title appeared. The modern borders of the neighborhood are Calle Ocho to the north, Coral Way to the south, SW 12th Ave to the east and SW 27th Ave to the west. Shenandoah Elementary is a PreK-5th Grade elementary school that currently has 750 students.

Shenandoah is home to many revivalist architectures homes and buildings.
