In today’s episode of This Day in Miami History, the City of Miami suffers a devastating fire in the early hours of December 26, 1896, burning down buildings where potentially half of the city’s business was transacted. Within that story, however, is the story of Miami’s first saloon. It’s checkered legal history, and its until-now not-fully-known owners, are explored.
