Charming print of an historic "Bird's Eye View" map of Palm Beach, Florida, published in 1915. It is obvious how Palm Beach got its name, from the lovely palm trees and beaches that are found there, of course. This map provides a bird's eye view of the county just six years after it was established, in 1909. The first meetings of the new county government were held in a schoolhouse on the corner of Clematis Street and Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. All of Lake Okeechobee was included in Palm Beach County. The southernmost part of the county was ceded to Broward County, the same year this map was published, 1915. Okeechobee County was created from the northwest portion of Palm Beach County two years after this map was published, in 1917.

Palm Beach was the home of Henry Flagler, who is credited with bringing the railways into southern Florida in the late 1800s with an extension of the Florida East Coast Railway, through the county from Jacksonville to Key West.
