El Fenix Mexican Restaurant

1946-1956

Miguel retired to his boyhood home of Hacienda Del Potrero, Mexico, where he shared his new found wealth with the poor townspeople, bringing them electricity and water. He had a central plaza built and landscaped, creating a ring around the plaza. This included cement benches that had the names of his children and grandchildren hand painted on the backrests. The benches remain there today.
