The YMCA building had a steam-heated indoor tiled swimming pool, a gymnasium with a stage, a two-lane bowling alley and twenty-three dormitory rooms with showers for single Anglo men: engineers, chemists, accountants, and other specialists and employees of the Miami Copper Company. A banquet room, conference room, billiard and pool tables framed the spacious lobby, along with a library, reading room, and a well-furnished kitchen
