1. Site of the Palm Beach Pier Marker
Inscription.  Erected and opened to the public in 1925, the pier extended out 1,095 feet from this point. For over forty years, it was a favorite town attraction, featuring a coffee shop, cocktail lounge, restaurant, tackle shop and fishermen’s lockers. A series of successive storms and hurricanes gradually eroded the structure, causing it to be removed in 1969.
 
Erected 1991 by The Palm Beach Board of Realtors.
