About Boca Raton

Detail Image
First settled in 1895, Boca Raton soon became a small agricultural community, continuing to produce winter vegetable crops through the 1940s. During the land boom of the 1920s, architect Addison Mizner initiated the tourism industry when he began work on the exclusive hotel that is today's Boca Raton Resort & Club. Boca Raton still proudly reflects Mizner's Spanish-Moorish building style. Incorporated as a municipality in 1925, Boca Raton's original Town Hall is an historic focal point for the city. In 1967, IBM located in Boca Raton, ushering an era of economic and business development that continues today.
