City of Delray Beach, Florida

Originally, this community was called Linton. It’s name was changed to Delray, which is an anglicized version of “Del Ray,” meaning “of the king” in Spanish. Pineapples were their main crop, and canning factories began to spring up all across the area. In 2001, the historic home of teacher/principal Solomon D. Spady was renovated into the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum. The Spady Museum houses African American archives and hosts exhibits to recognize the efforts of the men and women who were so important in shaping Delray Beach and Palm Beach County.
