Lake Worth history:

First known as Jewel, the site was sold by Fannie James in 1911 to a development company. The name was changed to Lucerne in January 1912 when lots were given away free to those who bought tracts of land in Greenacres City. The free lots proved to be so popular that a post office became necessary here. Because there was already a Lucerne in Florida, the name was changed to Lake Worth.
