Who is Benjamin Siegel?

Don't confuse Mr. Siegel with a mobster who went by the same name. When you first hear of Benjamin Siegel, you may think of the man who was a legendary organized crime boss and founder of Murder Inc., often credited with the development of the Las Vegas Strip.

This Benjam Siegeinl was a talented businessman who moved to Detroit in 1881 and began managing the women's apparel department at a clothing store on Woodward Avenue. His talents led him to purchase the store, which became known as the 'B. Siegel Company.'

The store was well-known for selling upscale women's and children's clothing as well as being a major player in the furs and sild stocking trade.
