This location is pretty boring. It has been the continuous home of the Miami Public Library since 1921. Interestingly, Burtrum Motors ran several newspaper ads in 1960 stating that they had a car lot at 200 N Main. The paper was known for typos, but several in one year? If anyone knows more, please share.
