W.A. Larkins was one of the early landowners of this area. When the community grew and a post office was built, Larkins was made the first postmaster. The community itself was named Larkins, in his honor. In 1926, when the residents of this area wanted to incorporate it, they adopted the name South Miami. In 1933, the city which was originally six square miles in size was cut down to 3 miles with the intention of reducing municipal responsibilities. It was further reduced in 1937.
