The Canal Hotel, the city’s first hotel, was built on this site just after construction of the Miami Canal began. It was the largest structure in the city and was said to have been “extensively patronized by men of influence.” By 1880, the hotel had changed hands five times and was torn down to then become the Grayson House and the Arlington Hotel. Not long after the 1913 flood, extensive restorations and additions to the building were made, and the John Ross store opened in 1915. It was the prestige of the area, and next door was a five and dime store known as the G.C. Murphy Co. In 1951 the Ross Store moved across the street and Murphy’s expanded into this building to become one of the mainstays in the downtown.
