Singer Island is known for its picturesque beaches, luxury condos, and million-dollar views. But just over a hundred years ago, the island hadn't a single brick of infrastructure. Palm Beach County locals may recognize names like Mizner and MacArthur from community parks and theatres, but may not know is the historical impact of these public figures. Here's some history about the development of Singer Island.
The first recorded settlement was in 1906, consisting of fishermen and squatters from the Bahamas and Riviera Beach.
