Back in the mid 1800's, settlers named the area Lake Worth. The settlement covered a large area a portion of which was in Palm Beach County when it was created in 1909. The city was once an unincorporated area of West Palm Beach. When rumor had it that West Palm Beach wanted to expand into this area with its city boundaries, residents decided to try for incorporation. Once the requirements were met, incorporation was approved in 1947. More information may be found on the website below.

Mangonia Park Historical Events

1988, June 17
A new municipal office complex that would house the Town Administration staff, Town Council Meeting Chambers and the Police & Fire Department(s) was dedicated and opened. This same building remains the current location of the Town Administration staff offices and Town Council Chambers, but now houses the District-II sub-station personnel of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. (Information from the town history page)
1987, March 17
At a regular scheduled public meeting, the Town Council appointed Councilman Earl Mixon, Jr., as the first black Mayor in the Town’s history. Previously in March of 1982, Mixon had been the first African-American ever elected to the Town Council. Mixon’s tenure would end just months later when he resigned from his Town Council Seat upon moving into the City of West Palm Beach. He attempted to continue his political career by unsuccessfully running for a seat on the Port of Palm Beach Commission in 1988. Sadly, Mr. Mixon, passed away on April 15, 2008. He remains to this day, as one of the most popular beloved former Town Council members in the history of Mangonia Park.
1978, December 25
In the early morning hours of December 25, 1978, the historic Palm Beach Jai-Alai Fronton caught fire and was completely destroyed. The cause of the Christmas morning blaze was determined to be arson. Investigators with the Mangonia Park Police Department, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) spent over two (2) years interviewing potential suspects, current and former employees of the fronton, town residents, reviewing records and crime scene information. However, to this day, no one has ever been arrested and/or charged for any crime related to the fronton fire. (Information from the town history page)
