1965

In the mid 1930s,when Miguel began to expand, he purchased a parking lot directly across the street from the El Fenix Café and Ballroom. Twenty-five years later, in 1965, that parking lot would become the present day location of the downtown El Fenix. El Fenix Café and Ballroom are sold to the city and demolished to make way for the Woodall Rodgers Freeway.
