Living in West Palm Beach, FL

West Palm Beach is located in southern Florida, just 70 miles north of Miami along the state’s beautiful east coast. The city had humble beginnings as a settlement founded by Henry M.

Many of the settlement’s first residents lived in tents and shanties, but when the population got together and incorporated West Palm Beach as a town in 1894, the new town council saw to the construction of more permanent brick and stone structures.
