The area now known as Delray Beach was once inhabited by the Native American tribe called the Jaega. Little is known about these early inhabitants, however their diet of shellfish, deer, and sea turtles made Delray Beach a prime location for settlement. The Tequesta and Seminole Indians likely inhabited the area after the Jaega’s exit. Very little documented settlement occurred until 1876 when the Orange Grove House of Refuge was built by the US government to provide shelter for sailors who were shipwrecked. Soon after, a group of African-Americans purchased a plot of land near the center of Delray Beach, establishing a settlement. The community grew and, in 1894, they built their first school. During that time, William Linton, a Republican senator from Michigan, purchased land with the intent of selling plots to create a farming community. At that time, the community became known as Linton. The farming community continued to grow, producing truckloads of vegetables during the winter. Linton later established a store and post office. A harsh winter freeze, however, severely damaged the crops in 1898, forcing many to leave the area. In 1901, the name of the town was changed to Delray, which means “the King” in Spanish. The area began to attract new settlers from the Bahamas, as well as residents from other areas of Florida.
In 1911, the Town of Delray was officially incorporated. The town prospered during the land boom of the 1920s. Focusing on building up its infrastructure, they issued bonds to pay for sidewalks, roads, and canals. When the land boom ended, however, the town was left financially strapped as minimal revenues were generated from property taxes to repay the bonds. Despite their financial challenges, the town eventually began to prosper. The Town of Delray was combined with Delray Beach in 1927, giving the area access to the Atlantic Ocean. The new Town of Delray Beach began to attract eclectic seasonal visitors, bringing artists, writers, and entertainers to the coastal community. Delray Beach also became known for the variety of architectural styles, often influenced by Art Deco, Streamline Moderne, Monterey Colonial, and bungalow. In the 1960s, Delray Beach became known for surfing and in the 1970s, Interstate 95 was extended to connect Miami with Palm Beach Gardens, thus providing highway access to Delray Beach residents. While the 1980s saw the western sections of Delray Beach developing at a fast rate, to the detriment of the historic eastern sections of the city. In the 1990s, the historic sections of eastern Delray Beach underwent a revitalization period. The Town of Delray Beach continues to grow, attracting new business and sports events, including several international tennis matches.
Delray Beach is a coastal community, with a mix of residential neighborhoods and businesses, with plenty of shopping, outdoor activities, and sports. With a current population of 65,044, the town is racially diverse as 55.9% of its population is white, 9.9% Hispanic, and 30.1% African American. The median property value in Delray Beach is $207,100 and the median household income is $51,829. Residents of Delray Beach spend an average of 20.9 minutes commuting to work each day.What is Pain and Suffering in a Personal Injury Case?
This refers to an expansive list of injuries that may have resulted from an accident. It can include direct medical costs, lost wages, property damage, or reimbursement for incidental costs. However, the effect of an accident can cause greater emotional or mental damage. Victims may be stricken with insomnia, fear, anxiety, or trauma, often delaying their ability to return of a normal life. In some cases, serious or life-changing injuries can cause significant pain and suffering, beyond the physical damage. An accomplished musician who is no longer able to play an instrument or professional athlete who can no longer participate in sports may endure extensive pain and suffering as they learn a new way of life.Why Contact a Personal Injury Attorney?
