With everything downtown being replaced with taller, newer, non-descript buildings, the Freedom Tower is a beacon to what the legacy of those first settlers was....very interesting and important.

This building is very Historic.. It was built in 1925 as the Miami News Building. Then it was the processing location of the Cubans coming into the U.S.

A building built in 1925 full of history, mainly for us Cubans. That building served as a refuge for many Cubans exiled from Cuba by Fidel Castro.
