Palm Beach Avenue
|Palm Beach Avenue|
|Origin of name||Palm Beach, Florida|
Palm Beach Avenue appears in the 1905 Hopkins atlas. Bob Regan includes "Palm Beach" in a list of streets named for cities. The naming of the street actually predates the incorporation of the Florida town in 1911, but the town had been a resort since 1894.
