About Briny Breezes, Florida
Briny Breezes is located in Palm Beach County. It is south of Ocean Ridge and north of Gulf Stream. It sits between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intercoastal Waterway. It consists of only about .1 square mile, most of which is land and only a tiny bit of which is water. It is called “Briny” by its residents. It is a tiny oceanfront community consisting of about 488 mobile homes. It and Ocean Breeze are the only mobile home parks in Florida that are incorporated as towns.
It was originally a strawberry farm owned by a Michigan lumberman named Ward Miller. During the Great Depression, he allowed tourists to camp on his land in trailors they brought down with them. He originally rented them the land for $3 per week. In 158, he wanted to retire and decided to sell the land. He offered lots for $2000 each and $2500 for the lots on the water. The town was incorporated in 1963 and installed its own mayor and post office. The original mayor was Hugh David. He held office until 1997, when he died, and was never opposed in an election. In the fall of 2005, a developer offered to buy the town for five hundred million dollars. The majority of the town approved the sale but the deal later fell apart. Briny is a nice place to visit and a great place to live.
