More on The Floridant
The roaring '20s was when Florida resembled the Klondike Gold Rush—but the gold was in the sands of the state's beautiful beaches. People from all over the country rushed to invest in one of the most iconic of the "boom era" projects: Addison Mizner's Boca Raton.

Thursday, September 7: Music of the 1980s

The disco '80s was amplified flash, celebrating both big shoulders and big hair. It was the decade that IBM produced the ancestor of all PC computers and boomtown Boca was hailed as Silicon Beach.

Thursday, October 12 – Music of the '90s (The 1890s)

In 1896, a new town called Boca Raton was established on Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railway, and pioneers brought phonographs with them so they could enjoy a little ragtime, the pop music of the period.
