Alexander C. Graw purchased The South Florida Banner from Rev. Joseph A. Kahl in 1914 and changed the name to The Homestead Enterprise. Alexander and his son, LaMonte, were influential figures in the early history of Homestead. The Homestead Enterprise ceased publishing in 1931, a victim of the Depression, when it was purchased by Ben Archer and his The Homestead Leader, which was established in 1923. The newspaper name was then changed to The Leader-Enterprise.
