Subject

City History - Banyan Tree

Description

In 1959, the main entrance to Palm Beach Gardens was north of Northlake and Garden (now MacArthur) Boulevards. In 1961, MacArthur transplanted a banyan tree to that site, and the tree became the city's symbol. MacArthur had heard about a resident in Lake Park who was being forced to cut down an old banyan tree, 60 feet high and weighing about 75 tons, and he offered to transfer it to Palm Beach Gardens. This photograph was featured in LIFE Magazine.
