The City of Boynton Beach, "The Gateway to the Gulf Stream," is a coastal city located in a rapidly growing area of Palm Beach County. Major Nathan S. Boynton, a native of Michigan who distinguished himself in the Civil War, founded the city, which has a current population of over 65,000.
Boynton directed the construction of the Boynton Beach Hotel from 1895 to 1897. He and his workmen, recruited from Michigan, brought their families and settled in the new town of Boynton. With other settlers, the early years of our city were spent building a town, raising vegetables to supply their needs and those of the guests at the Boynton Beach Hotel and shipping pineapples, tomatoes and other cash crops north on Henry Flagler's new Florida East Coast Railroad. Today, the city attracts a multitude of business and industry and people of all ages and interests.
