The Founding of Palm Beach Gardens
This 55.3-square-mile community used to be primarily cattle ranches and pine forests. But then, in 1959, John D. MacArthur announced plans to develop 4,000 acres and to build homes for 55,000 people. He picked the name Palm Beach Gardens because his initial preference, Palm Beach City, was denied by the Florida Legislature because of its similarity to Palm Beach.
The community incorporated in 1959. Starting in the 1960s and 1970s, the community saw population grow significantly. People wanted to relocate to the area because of the growth potential, as well as esteemed location within Palm Beach County.
Growth really took off with the opening of the 1.3 million square foot Gardens Mall in 1988, which helped place Palm Beach Gardens on the map.
Then, the Professional Golfers’ Association of America located its headquarters in the city, which really helped the community become more famous. The location made sense, given that there are 12 golf courses within the city limits, including a course owned by the municipality.
