Lake Clarke Shores, Florida, was established in 1940, and officially became a town until 1957. Located just south of the Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) in South Florida, Lake Clarke Shores sits between West Palm Beach and Lake Worth.
With a rich history of pineapple farming, Lake Clarke Shores became northern Florida's link to fresh pineapples. John Clarke, the son of a Palm Beach pioneer, chose 5 acres of land in Lake Clarke Shores to build his pineapple farm and packing house. Some time later, agriculture gave way to the arrival of a new railroad. When the new railroad was expanded to include Key West, it became more cost effective for pineapples or "pinas" grown in Cuba to imported from Key West.
