The Hotel Canfield was built in 1890 and operated initially as the Paris House. It was expanded in 1927 using modern materials, allowing the owners to advertise the hotel as "fireproof."
In 1946, the original part of the hotel was destroyed by fire, only the "fireproof" part of the structure survived, which operates as the Canfield Hotel to this day.
A beautiful neon sign adorns the front of the building.
