Palm Beach County is in the southeastern portion of Florida, directly north of Broward and Miami-Dade counties. According to a 2019 report, the county had 1,496,770 people, making it Florida's third-most populous county and the country's 25th-most populous county. West Palm Beach is the county seat and the central city. After being severed from Dade County in 1909, the county was named after one of its oldest communities, Palm Beach.

The Coconut Grove House, the first hotel in the area, began operation in 1880 to serve guests as word of the area's attractiveness extended northward. The island town was fully established by the early 1890s, with multiple hotels, shops, and winter dwellers. With the establishment of Henry M. Flagler's Royal Poinciana Hotel in 1894 and the advent of the Florida East Coast Railroad in 1896, the pioneer phase came to a close. The railroad tracks spanned Lake Worth so that trains could drop off passengers at Flagler System hotels like the Palm Beach Inn, which was right on the beach.

After being renamed The Breakers in response to many requests for rooms "down by the breakers," the hotel was destroyed by fire in 1903. In the same area, Henry Flagler authorized the construction of a larger, more expensive hotel, which opened the following year. In March 1925, the hotel was once again devastated by fire, and was reconstructed with the majestic stone edifice that still stands as a notable landmark in Palm Beach county today. However, the modern-day boundaries of the county were established in 1963.

When the first residents came to what would become Palm Beach, the entire area was dubbed "Lake Worth," after Major General William Jenkins Worth, a Second Seminole War hero. First, pioneers battled against the elements to clear land for their homes and crops. Then, in 1872, the first permanent pioneers came. According to early settler stories, the county got its name from a shipwreck called the "Providencia."
