Town of Palm Beautification Projects Garden Club of America History Book

The Garden Club of Palm Beach was founded in 1928, and held its first Flower Show in 1929. The following year, the club commissioned a nationally renowned firm to create a formal Town Plan which was enthusiastically accepted by the Town Council in 1930.

In 1931 The Garden Club of Palm Beach was admitted to membership in The Garden Club of America. In the early years the club members planted palms along Royal Palm Way, replanted the Lake Trail after severe hurricane damage, addressed the problems posed by the proliferation of billboards, and advocated for more green spaces within the town. Members also created and have maintained the Demonstration Garden at The Society of the Four Arts. The Demonstration Garden is located on the same block as the Maurice Fatio-designed Four Arts Library. read more
