Miami's First Christmas (1896)

Miami's First Christmas (1896)

Just months after its incorporation Miami celebrated its first christmas with hope for the bright future that was too come. With christmas sales at local stores, increased tourism, famous guests, and construction all around that first christmas would be a good precursor for all others to come after it, except that this holiday season disaster struck. The christmastime fire of 1896 leveled the business district, made local legends into heroes, and changed the layout of the city in ways that can still be seen today.
