Site of the Palm Beach Pier


Erected and opened to the public in 1925, the pier extended out 1,095 feet from this point. For over forty years, it was a favorite town attraction, featuring a coffee shop, cocktail lounge, restaurant, tackle shop and fishermen’s lockers. A series of successive storms and hurricanes gradually eroded the structure, causing it to be removed in 1969.
