Miami City Hall is the local government headquarters for the City of Miami, Florida. It is located in the former Pan American Terminal Building on Dinner Key, which was constructed in 1934[2] for the former International Pan American Airport.[3] The old Pan American Airlines terminal building has served as the Miami City Hall since 1954.[4] An earlier city hall, located elsewhere, designed by Walter De Garmo was demolished.[5] The terminal building/city hall was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on February 20, 1975.[6]

Pan Am's final flight to Dinner Key took place August 9, 1945 as seaplane use decreased with the construction of landing fields (airports) in Latin America.[3]
