Boomtime Boca by Susan Gillis

Book Description

Boca Raton, Florida, was a tiny farming community onthe southeastern coast of Florida when the state s 1920s real estate boom grew into a national phenomenon. Investors and new residents were drawn to the state from all over the country, a time Floridians referred to as the Boom. In April 1925, well-known Palm Beach society architect Addison Mizner revealed his plans for an ambitious newdevelopment in Boca Raton. The plans included a gigantic oceanfront hotel, elegant mansions, golf and polo grounds, and palm-lined boulevards. The popularity of Mizner s projects stimulated many similar developments within the region, increasing the population of the town from 100 to several hundred residents. By the fall of 1926, however, theFlorida land boom came to an end. Boca Raton returned, for the most part, to its small-town agricultural heritage by 1930. By the end of the 20th century, boomtime dreams were fully realized and Boca Raton became one of Florida s most prestigious addresses."
