Lantana is a coastal community in Palm Beach County, which still retains the charm of its origins as an old Florida fishing village. Although Lantana is one of the smaller communities of Palm Beach County, it is noted as one of the oldest. The first settlers came after Congress passed the Armed Occupation Act in 1842 at the end of the Seminole Wars. The Lyman family is distinguished as the founders of the town, named Lantana for the wild Lantana plant, which grew in abundance in the area.
The town of Lantana was incorporated in 1921 with 22 residents voting in the first election. At the time of incorporation, the area of Lantana was one square mile with a population of 100 residents. Today, Lantana covers 2.25 square miles with a population over 10,000, that increases to some 14,000 during the winter months. Like the rest of South Florida, Lantana has experienced a tremendous building boom which continues to this day.
