James Warnke spoke fifty years ago at the November, 1968 Boynton Beach Historical Society meeting held at the First Bank of Boynton Beach. Interestingly, the site of the historical society's meetings, before they founded and funded the Florida Historical Archives Room at the Boynton Beach City Library is NOW the temporary site of the Boynton Library. #history #historyrepeats #allhistoryallthetime (15 Nov 1968). - ...

Thank you ALA Library History Round Table for featuring “Overdue in Paradise: The Library History of Palm Beach County.”
Boynton residents Daniel Morris Bennett, Verne Hollingsworth, Lawrence D. Knuth and Cleveland Pitts died in the Vietnam War. Boynton Beach Veteran’s Park has a number of interesting, educational monuments, but nothing memorizing our boys. We hope to change that. Recently, a woman contacted us with a photo quest for Daniel Bennett. We discovered that Bennett worked for the City. “His name is etched on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC. The foundation which built the Wall has a Wall of Faces, a project started 10 years ago to find a photo of each of the names on the Wall. Daniel Morris Bennet at this time has a photo displayed, that by observation, may be another’s photo. As a volunteer photo contributor, after noticing that the same photo is displayed for Daniel Morris Bennett and Terry Lee Weber of Albion, Indiana, I would like to correct this error.” ... See more

We noticed that the Wikipedia page for sites on the National Register of Historic Places incorrectly lists the Boynton High School as being in the Register. The picture shows the 1926 high school as the address of 141 E. Ocean Avenue. Has it been added? We don't see the 1913 Boynton School at 129 E.

Does Historic Boynton Beach consider the Oscar Magnuson House a historic and important Boynton landmark?
Still alive and well and in its sixth decade!
Update - As far as we know Doc's is still alive and well! End of an era: For nearly 65 years, Doc's All American hamburger stand at 10 N Swinton in Delray Beach has fed generations of locals and served as a popular hangout. The iconic eatery, with its familiar red, white and blue neon sign and decor opened in 1951. If you are hungry for nostalgia, stop in soon as a developer purchased the property and it is reported the structure is facing possible demolition or relocation. ... See more
