Historical Society of Lake Worth - Trying to find the oldest house in Lake Worth


May 9, 2017


Hint: The first residents arrived and purchased land in 1912.

The Historical Society of Lake Worth has been working for more than a year to find the oldest house in Lake Worth. The Society’s Marion Cone, Vice President, along with the help of Aimee Sunny, City Senior Preservation Coordinator, her two professional staff members and Helen Greene are now ready to hold the unveiling.

We know where some are hiding, but we welcome nominations. They must meet the City’s standards of a historic property. This project is a part of our activities to mark National Historic Preservation Month – May 2017 – culminating with an awards ceremony on May 17th which we are co-sponsoring with the City of Lake Worth’s Preservation Division, Community Sustainability Department.

Another preservation project is a small photographic exhibit called “Lake Worth in Photos — Work and Play in the First Two Decades at the Cultural Council gallery exposing just a tiny fraction of the extensive collection of the Lake Worth Historical Museum. The mission of this association is to research, interpret and preserve the history of Lake Worth and thereby to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of our city’s history, cultural and natural environment and to share our findings with others of similar interests.

The Historical Society of Lake Worth, Inc. is a not-for-profit, 501 ( c ) 3, private educational organization dedicated to perpetuating Lake Worth’s history.
