Main St Boynton Beach, Fl
circa 1908 Florida Memory

Shadow21If you have additional resources that are appropriate to include, please contact me.

Since I am in the Palm Beach / Broward area I cite these two examples:

 

Broward County: There are 32 Issues of The Broward Legacy available for download.

Palm Beach County: Palm Beach History Online. As of 2020 there are 11 Issues of Tustenegee History Journal for download, each filled with information, photos and more. The website also includes native, pioneer life, maps, notable people and so on. Here is a Brief History of West Palm Beach in pdf from another source. Florida cities and towns also may have an historical society that will have more relevant local records. Here in Palm Beach County we have the Boynton Beach Historical Society. See also Historic Boynton Beach Homes on Facebook

NO Metal detecting in Palm Beach County Parks: See the ordinance here Chapt. 21 Parks & Recreation
Sec. 21-20. - Buildings and other property.
(b) No person shall dig, move or remove from any park area any beach sand, soil, rocks, stones, trees, shrubs, whether submerged or not, or plants, down-timber, or other wood or materials, or make any excavation by tool, equipment, or other means, or construct or erect any building or structure of whatever kind, whether permanent or temporary in character, or run or string any public service utility into, upon, or across such land, or affix any materials to any park property, except with the prior written approval of the Director.

(c)No person shall excavate or remove any artifact or archeologically sensitive material, including but not limited to, Native American burial grounds and living sites from park property.


Here is a quick reference with historical information on every Florida County and Florida State Information Guide. In addition to general county historical information, look further to find detailed history on every town / city within each county.

NOTE: I will not at this time be able to provide research links for every county in Florida noted below. See what I have provided and do a search for your county of interest.
