The story of Cleve Van Dyke, founder of Miami

Cleve Van Dyke

By Ted Lake | Arizona Silver Belt

Originally from Saint Paul, Minn., Cleve Van Dyke first came to Arizona in 1905 when he was hired by a real estate and development company in southern Arizona to help lay out the model town of “Warren” near Bisbee.

In this development project, he was involved primarily in the construction of the Warren-Bisbee Electric Railway, sewers and electric lighting systems. When his part of Warren project was completed, he set out to develop another town in Arizona that would be his own and came to the Miami area in the fall of l908.
