Boca Raton is Palm Beach County’s southernmost hub of history and culture. This is the city that was, in the early part of the 20th century, an Army Air Corps base and a few decades later, home to one of the biggest IBM headquarters in the world. Of course, for an area so immersed and dedicated to its own traditions, the city needed its own organization, Boca Raton Historical Society, to keep everything well-preserved. Now, the organization is housed in Boca Raton’s original 1926 Town Hall, renamed The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum, where it frequently leads tours of the building and other local historical sites including the former Boca Raton Resort & Club (designed by famous architect Addison Mizner) and the Florida East Coast Railway Station, built in 1930.
