Little Haiti

Little Haiti is a neighborhood of Miami, Florida, United States. It is known historically as Lemon City, Little River, and Edison. It is home to many Haitian immigrant residents, as well as many residents from the rest of the Caribbean. Little Haiti is a known neighborhood of Haitian exiles. The area is characterized by its French–Creole designations, with its street life, restaurants, art galleries, dance, music, theatre performances, family-owned enterprises, and other cultural activities. Steeped in the complex and rich cultural histories of Caribbean immigrants who brought life to its area, Little Haiti has evolved into a colorful beacon in Miami’s arts communities. Throughout the years, small businesses like celebrated record stores, kitsch bars, and authentic eateries have eased into the neighborhood, creating their particular patchwork within the already distinct Little River and newly named Little Haiti.

The area now known as Little Haiti was called Lemon City for well over a century. Several people settled near Biscayne Bay north of the Miami River after the civil war, squatting on unclaimed land. Some of the squatters eventually applied for homestead grants for the land they were squatting on. By 1889 a community had formed, with a post office named “Motto”. “Lemon City” replaced “Motto” as the name of the community by 1893. A school had opened in 1890, and Lemon City also included several businesses and a newspaper, as well as port facilities on Biscayne Bay. With the extension of the Florida East Coast Railway to Miami in 1896, Miami quickly overshadowed Lemon City.

Characterized by the Victorian architecture found in parts of the Caribbean, Little Haiti is the heart and soul of Miami’s Haitian community. Local venues and businesses such as the Caribbean Marketplace and Libreri Mapou, a bookstore devoted to Haitian literature in French, Creole, and English, stand out with their high-pitched roofs and bright pastel colors. Located about five miles north of Downtown Miami, Little Haiti’s main attractions are centered around the Northeast 2nd Avenue corridor. A1 Bed Bug Exterminator Miami
