Friends Speaker Series: Coconuts, Beaches, Mosquitoes, and Panthers: The Pioneer Era of Palm Beach County 1860-1893

Sunday, January 15, 2023


Today, Palm Beach County is a modern paradise, easily reached from anywhere in the world, but in the late 19th century, getting here was not so easy. And, when you arrived, a lush jungle paradise greeted you, from which you would have to hack out your homestead. Journey back in time with Michael KcKeich from the Palm Beach County Historical Society to look at the difficulties of getting here, the settlers’ early homes, life-saving stations, food, hotels, mosquitoes, and pioneer life in what they thought was a “Garden of Eden.”
