The city is known for its famed and Historic Clematis Street and Rosemary Square districts in Downtown West Palm Beach. These districts speak to the robust West Palm economy and are pillars of the city, attracting new residents and investors. Henry Morrison Flagler was the architect who brought West Palm Beach to life, desiring for it to be “a resort for the wealthy” inspired by Beaux-Arts style architecture. Beaux-Arts leans into symmetry, utilizes columns, raised first stories, and stone/stone-like materials. Flagler named the street of West Palm after exotic flowers, which is how Clematis got its name. It still holds true to its bustling storefront beginnings.
