A Look Back In Time
Loxahatchee Groves was a small part of some 2,000,000 acres of land purchased by the Southern States Land and Tiber Company in 1902 for 25 cents per acre. After completing the West Palm Beach Canal in 1917, a Southern States manager (George Bensel) was inspired by the waterfront and envisioned a farming community. Joined by a fellow Southern States employee (T.G. Thorgesen), they produced maps of Loxahatchee Groves (also called Loxahatchee Farms).
Bensel, Thorgesen, and other investors formed the Palm Beach Loxahatchee Co. and bought 6,500 acres of Loxahatchee Farms from Southern States Land and Timber. They proceeded to build approximately 30 miles of canals and roads on the property and in 1925 Bensel opened a combined grocery store, gas station, and post office. While devastated by the hurricane of 1928, agriculture prospered into the 1930's and residents planted near 56,000 citrus trees.
The agricultural and citrus focus of Loxahatchee Groves died with Bensel in 1961 and development of the areas immediately surrounding Loxahatchee was threatening the rural life there. Known as "Florida's Last Frontier", Loxahatchee Groves incorporated in 2006 to protect itself from the urbanization taking place of surrounding towns and cities.
