About Boynton Beach, Florida
Boynton Beach is located in Palm Beach County. It is north of Delray Beach and south of Lake Worth. It is west of Ocean Ridge, Briny Breezes and Gulf Stream, all small communities along the ocean. It is named after American Civil War major Nathan Boynton. He came from Michigan and fell in love with all the sunshine so he built the Boynton Hotel. His family wintered yearly at his hotel.
The Town of Boynton was incorporated in 1920. In 1926, the Seaboard Air Line Railway entered Boynton. It spurred land development a mile inland, near the Seaboard Station. In 1931, a portion of the town split off naming itself Boynton Beach. In 1939, that portion changed its name to Ocean Ridge, allowing the Town of Boynton to take that name in 1941. Many dairy farms were formed over time in the west. At one point it was the main milk supplier for all of Palm Beach county. In the 1970’s, these dairy farms were no longer profitable so they were converted to housing developments.
The municipality consists of 16.25 square miles of which 15.88 square miles are land and .37 square miles are water. It is home to the Boynton Mall, Bethesda Memorial Hospital, St Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary, Canyon District Park and the Canyon Amphitheater.
