1. Silver Palm Historic District Marker
Inscription. The Silver Palm District named for the small silver-backed fronds that grew profusely in the surrounding pine forest, was the first area south of Cutler opened for settlement. In 1900, Charles Gossman, Charles Hill and William Anderson filed the first homestead claims. The crossroads of SW 232 Street and SW 157 Avenue, known as Anderson's Corner was the commercial center of the community. The local historic district includes Anderson's General Store (1912), the Silver Palm Schoolhouse (1904), the Redland District Lion's Club (1934) and the site of the Kelly store, which was demolished after Hurricane Andrew.
 
Erected 1998 by Redland Centennial.
