First Post Office in Palm beach


Just to the east is the site of first post office between Fort Jupiter and Miami. Originally known as the Lake Worth post office, it was succeeded by the Palm Beach post office, and the earlier title was later taken by the community to the South, present day Lake Worth. It was in the home of the first postmaster, Valorus O. Spencer, who was appointed in 1880.
