Home to exquisite mansions and historic landmarks, a town with global tastes and residents who value the finer things in life.
Palm Beach is an exceptional place, and really, it could not have been any other way. The area we know today was founded by oil magnate Henry Morrison Flagler as a Gilded Age-era resort at the turn of the 20th century. Beneath swaying palm trees, Flagler built his fabulous Beaux-Arts mansion—now the eponymous museum—along with extravagant hotels, and the world followed him there. Since the very start, Palm Beach has defined timeless elegance. Literally and metaphorically, it’s an island: Bridges may now connect Palm Beach to the mainland, but it remains a place set apart. It’s a world unto itself, a town with global tastes and a value for the finer things in life. From its spectacular residences to its immaculate parks, every aspect of the island fits the dictionary definition of magnificence.
