Palm Beach by Richard A Marconi

Book Description

Palm Beach is known internationally as a winter resort where the wealthy enjoy life in a tropical paradise. More than 100 years ago, Palm Beach was far different from its well-kept beaches, estates, and fabulous Worth Avenue shopping mecca of the 21st century. When the first permanent settlers arrived, they found the area covered by thick jungle that had to be tamed before they could carve out a new life for themselves. The settlers ended up with a paradise, and when Henry Flagler decided to build a grand hotel in Palm Beach, he planted the first seed for the creation of a modern winter retreat for the rich.

Palm Beach by Richard A Marconi Palm Beach, Paperback / softback (March 2013)

Once referred to as a "veritable paradise" by Florida developer Henry M. Flagler, Palm Beach has transformed from a small frontier community to a remarkably picturesque historic town. The seaside resort's charm is found in its diverse architecture, landmarks, mega-mansions, beaches, and land and streetscapes.
