Born and raised in the Palm Beach area, lecturer Rick Rose is an active member of the Historical Society of Palm Beach  County, the Flagler Museum and the Palm Beach Preservation Foundation. In this lecture, he’ll give an inside look at Palm Beach’s historical significance as one of the most important resort destinations in the world and as the first destination in the United States developed solely for leisure travelers. From the Gilded Age through the roaring twenties, Palm Beach drew its inspiration from the glamorous seaside resort towns of Europe to become one of the most desirable destinations in the world.
