Pompano Beach Historical Timeline Display Reveal
Did you know that Pompano Beach is the second oldest city in Broward County, and the fifth oldest in all of South Florida? Other than Key West, which by the 1820s was already an important port and city, the towns of southeast Florida came into being because of the railroad. In 1896 Henry Flagler decided to extend his Florida East Coast Railway south from West Palm Beach to Miami, opening up land that heretofore had been a virtual wilderness.
On February 27th at 10:00 am, the Pompano Beach Historic Preservation Board is excited to present the Pompano Beach Historic Timeline Display. This presentation event will be located in the lobby of City Hall, 100 W. Atlantic Blvd. The display will not only be a beautifully addition to the City Hall lobby, but will also function as an educational tool illuminating the wonderful achievements of Pompano Beach’s local trail blazers and providing examples for people of all ages to emulate our forefathers’ drive and determination.
This event is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnership with the City of Pompano Beach.
