A town in Palm Beach County. It is separated by the Intracoastal Waterway from neighboring cities of West Palm Beach and Lake Worth. Before it was Palm Beach, it was known as Lake Worth to the first occupants who arrived in the area. Sparsely populated prior to Flaglers railroad development. The Town of Palm Beach received its name from a shipwreck that occurred in 1878. The ship “Providencia” had a cargo full of coconuts from Havana and was heading to Capiz, Spain. Since the wreck was near the shore near Mar-a-Largo, residents wasted no time in salvaging the coconuts and planted them. Soon in no time they grew into lush coconut trees now known as the Palm Beach all over the world. Flagler established the town and made the Atlantic coast barrier island accessible via the Florida East Coast Railway. Today, it is a beautifully developed community. The quality of life is superb and small town character remains. Palm Beach is home to the famous Worth Avenue and “Captains of Industry”. Its residents donate more per capita to charities than any other communities in America.
