THE BEGINNING: LEMON CITY
As one of the earliest local settlements in South Florida, Miami’s Little Haiti and Little River neighborhoods are in an area originally known as “Lemon City”. A name derived from the fragrant and abundant lemon trees and citrus groves the neighborhood became known for.
Today, the DuPuis Building from 1902 remains one of Miami’s oldest standing structures and serves as a monument to those first years. Named for community leader and physician Dr. John G. DuPuis, its masonry vernacular style features pressed metal detailing typical of turn-of-the-century American commercial architecture. A full restoration of this historic building is planned as part of the District’s commitment to preserving and honoring the area’s past.
THE MAGIC CITY IS BORN
In 1925 the City of Miami annexed Lemon City and Magic City entered the vernacular as a nickname for the city. In 1929, the Magic City Tourist Camp, a collection of historic tourist cabins catering to visitors traveling via automobile from northern states, was established.
HAITI FINDS A NEW HOME
From the 1950’s onwards Miami, also known as the Magic City, became an important destination for Haitian immigrants fleeing dictatorship and poverty. United by a shared spirit, these determined people rebuilt new lives while also celebrating and sharing their culture with the rest of the city. The Notre Dame d’Haiti Catholic Church, The Caribbean Marketplace, and iconic murals by the famed Haitian-born artist Serge Toussaint, all remain key cultural touchpoints for Little Haiti and the District.
THE FUTURE COMES CALLING
As the first decades of the 2000s era comes to a close, it is clear that the trajectory of growth in Miami is moving steadily northward – meaning Little Haiti has a unique opportunity to be at the crossroads of progress. Developers purchase multiple parcels of connected property totalling nearly 17 acres with the vision to build an engaging, integrated mixed-use destination that is woven into the very fabric of Little Haiti itself. This concept is what is now known as The Magic City Innovation District – Little Haiti®.
