Lantana history

The Old Key Lime House on E. Ocean Ave in Lantana” style=


Settled in the mid-1800s, Lantana grew along the Lake Worth Waterfront. Captain Morris Benson Lyman arrived in 1884, filing a 160-acre homestead which he called Lantana Point. This quickly became the center of the new development, complete with the Lyman family grocery store and other businesses. Streets sprouted up in an orderly grid pattern to connect Lantana's new waterfront downtown to the Florida East Coast Railroad, and eventually the town became incorporated in 1921. By this time, it covered one square mile and was home to one hundred residents. At one time, fishing was a major industry in Lantana and this history is apparent today, with the charter fishing boats still bobbing in the Town's marina.
