West Palm Beach is a popular tourist destination on the east coast of Florida, 68 miles north of the heart of Miami. It was established during the late 1870s by settlers who called it Lake Worth Country. They established an economy built on the cultivation of tropical fruit and vegetables, which they distributed via Lake Worth and the Indian River. By 1890, the city was home to more than 200 people, as well as a hotel, church, and post office. The Florida land boom saw the city’s population quadrupled from 1920 to 1927, and its infrastructure grew to meet the demand. Key West Palm Beach historic districts like Belair, Flamingo Park, and Mango Promenade were developed during this time.
