Origin of name Palm Beach, Florida

Palm Beach Avenue appears in the 1905 Hopkins atlas.[1] Bob Regan includes "Palm Beach" in a list of streets named for cities.[2] The naming of the street actually predates the incorporation of the Florida town in 1911, but the town had been a resort since 1894.[3]
