North Miami Beach History

Henry Flagler constructed the Florida East Coast Railway from the West Palm Beach area to Miami in 1896. Small communities developed near the train stops he created. A large number of the settlers arrived due to the offer of 160 acres of free land by the United States Government. In the 1890's farms were established along the Oleta River. In 1912 Lafe Allen arrived in Florida and along with an associate bought a large acreage. He began selling lots in 1922.

It was originally known as Filford By-The-Sea. The devastating hurricane of 1926 caused extensive damage and put a halt to the real estate boom. The real estate market did not thrive again until after WW II ended. In 1931 the city was renamed North Miami Beach in order to prosper from the national advertising for Miami Beach.
