West Palm Beach as we know it was founded in the late 19th Century around the freshwater lake that sits just in from the coast. One of the first businesses was a lumber yard, but by the 1950s, West Palm Beach was one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country. The area has seen numerous population booms over the decades, but it was the improvement and beautification projects at the end of the 20th Century that truly established West Palm Beach as the thriving, luxurious city it is today.
