Overview

On April 2, 1894, a shiny new train rolled southbound along shiny new tracks destined for the brand new station in the fledgling town of West Palm Beach. As it chugged down the tracks, people all along the way cheered its arrival, for with it came civilization and a shiny new day.

More About This Book

Overview

On April 2, 1894, a shiny new train rolled southbound along shiny new tracks destined for the brand new station in the fledgling town of West Palm Beach. As it chugged down the tracks, people all along the way cheered its arrival, for with it came civilization and a shiny new day. Also with it came the end of pioneer days in Southeast Florida, and overnight a way of life ended – for better or worse.

This book is for, about and by the pioneers, those hearty souls who left their families and the soft comforts of civilization and moved to a roadless, watery wilderness, a place with none of the conveniences of home, not to mention swarms of blood-thirsty mosquitos, large furry animals with fangs and claws, snakes of all kinds and a multitudinous array of interesting new crawly things...including the biggest, ugliest roaches they had ever seen.

It was the blood, sweat and tears of these brave men and women that paved the way for Henry Flagler's railroad, and it is their stories that are told in this book.
