Atlantic Beach History

Atlantic Beach was a small and quiet seaside community till a railway station was built at the site. It was followed by the construction of the Continental Hotel. This was enough to spread the good word around, and Atlantic Beach became hot property. It got incorporated in 1926 with Harcourt Bull Sr. assuming duties as the first mayor. In 1987, the city acquired the Seminole Beach area and in 1996 it extended its boundaries to the Intracoastal Waterway.
