Palm Beach

History of Palm Beach: A Spanish ship wrecked off the coast of Southeast Florida in 1878. Palm Beach may never have existed, as we know it today without that shipwreck. Full of coconuts, cigars and wine. Fast forward a few decades and enter Henry Flagler, Standard Oil tycoon and a man with a vision. He saw Florida's southeast coast as a winter escape for his friends. Naturally he decided the next move would be to find and build the Florida East Coast Railway Line. It was a recipe for success. Addison Mizner was the architect who set the direction for the island, Mediterranean Revival Style. The courtyards and sweeping staircases give it the grand appeal that Palm Beach families love, while the overall relaxed atmosphere made the town feel casual and at ease.


After 100 years of graceful evolution, Palm Beach today is a fully developed community, world-renowned for its beauty, quality of life and small-town character. It's the home to "Captains of the Industry" and the world famous Worth Avenue. Approximately 9,000 citizens make Palm Beach their year round home and about 20,000 more have a seasonal home for the winter months. 


The town is goverened by an elected Mayor and a five-member council, operates under the council-manager form of government, and provides a full range of quality municipal services. It has an active historic preservation program, strict zoning standards, high levels of public safety and public work services. Palm Beach also has 3 miles of public beaches, an array of recreaction  programs, including tennis and golf programs.
