A Brief History
In 1894, a former American Civil War major named Nathan Boynton first set eyes on this area. Boynton, from Port Huron, Michigan, was so impressed by the year-round sunshine and pristine beaches, he built the famous Boynton Hotel. He spent winters with his family and brought the first settlers from Port Huron. They soon realized that many fruits and vegetables thrived in the fertile climate. Pineapples, tomatoes, mangoes, and citrus fruit were soon packed in crates and shipped by the ton on the Florida East Coast Railroad. Boynton Beach was originally founded in 1898 as the Town of Boynton. The town was incorporated in 1920 and officially took the name "Boynton Beach" in 1941.
