The 17-story Miami Freedom Tower was built in 1925 and it served as the headquarters and printing office of the Miami Daily News and Metropolis until 1957. Between 1962 and 1974 the building was used an immigration station for refugees from Cuba. The tower was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places on September 10, 1979. The historic landmark now is part of the Miami Dade College campus. The second floor of the building serves as a gallery art exhibition space for the MDC Museum of Art + Design, open to the public for free Wednesday through Sunday.
