A little more on the history of West Palm Beach… all over South Florida there are streets named after the founder of West Palm, Mr. Henry Flagler. He originally purchased the property that now makes up the town for workers that he employed at hotels on nearby Palm Island. Flagler originally intended to terminate the Florida East Coast Railroad in West Palm Beach, but he later extended the rails down to Miami and both cities thrived competitively.
West Palm’s city architecture has seen some ups and downs over the years. There have been periods where as much as 80% of the waterfront commercial properties were vacant and the crime rate is 3 times the national average. Despite those problems in the past, there is a revitalization program in place that has transformed the downtown area and actually decreased the crime rate in some areas as much as 50%. There’s a Trump Plaza and the new City Center Project is just stunning and architecturally renowned.
The city of West Palm Beach has home to a lot of famous and influential people including Venus and Serena Williams, Donald Trump, Hank Aaron, Dickey Betts, Joe Namath, Tiger Woods, Burt Reynolds, Tommy Lee Jones, Joey Kramer, Alan Jackson, Rod Stewart, Jimmy Buffett, and George Hamilton along with many others.
