Boca Raton Injury Lawyers
Following the construction of the Florida East Coast Canal and the Florida East Coast Railway in the 1890s, a group of 18 pioneers settled Boca Raton and transformed it into a small agricultural community that specialized in pineapple cultivation. By May of 1925, at the height of the Florida land boom, Boca Raton was incorporated.
Addison Mizner, a respected architect of his time, was commissioned by the city council to build a resort-style community, and from that blossomed the beautiful Cloister Inn—today’s Boca Raton Resort & Club—which survives as one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks. Despite many of Mizner’s designs failing to come to fruition due to the land boom’s fall, much of his Spanish-Moorish style reigns throughout Boca Raton today. One such example was his design for Boca Raton’s original town hall, which was completed by William Alsmeyer, a Delray architect, in 1927.
By the 1970s, Boca Raton’s population surged to 30,000 as a result of westward land expansion that pushed into the Everglades. In 1967, IBM established a computer facility in Boca Raton, and by 1981, at the same facility, developed the first IBM personal computer.
