Boca Grove Country Club grooved through Lake Worth and Lantana on food, art and history tour


The Boca Grove Country Club traveled through the food, art and history in Lake Worth and Lantana, Florida on February 3, 2014 for a private Taste History Culinary Tour.
 

Judy of Cheese & Wine Café in Lantana, Florida hosted the Taste History Culinary Tour coordinated for the Boca Grove Country Club.
The Taste History Culinary Tour featured the origins of Lake Worth by highlighting African American pioneers Samuel and Fannie James who were former slaves and settlers pre-dating the incorporation of Lake Worth in 1913.  The James's purchased an initial 186 acres of land in 1885 and by 1889 had homesteaded in the area. The settlement pattern in Lake Worth later included people from the Midwest, black Bahamians, Germans and after World War II the Finnish arrived en masse.   Lake Worth is named after United States Brigadier General William Jenkins Worth who is credited with bringing the Second Seminole War in Florida to an end.  The Town of Lantana was named by Mr. M.B. Lyman of Lambton County, Ontario.  The Lantana is a flower that once grew wild in the area.
 
Boca Grove's tour rode and walked to the Cheese & Wine Café in Lantana; and in Lake Worth the Sabal Palm House Bed & Breakfast; the Java Juice Bar; and Brogues Down Under. They met local artists and viewed locally created works at Artisans on the Ave Gallery and Maryanne Webber Gallery both in the LULA Arts District in Downtown Lake Worth.
