Palm Coast Historical Society
The mission of the City of Palm Coast Historical Society is the collection, preservation and dissemination of material related to the City of Palm Coast and its people. Above is the artist rendering of the Welcome Center — the first building constructed in what is now the City of Palm Coast, incorporated on December 31, 1999. The Welcome Center 64 feet tall at its highest point, and individuals interested in purchasing a home site would take an elevator to the glass-enclosed observation tower. From there, one had a panoramic view of the surrounding woods and lakes, and the location of your lot was pointed out to you. The Welcome Center was located on Clubhouse Drive and the site was across the canal, to the left of what is now the first hole green of the Palm Harbor Golf Club. The building was opened in October of 1970. Despite efforts to save it, the building was demolished in 1995.
The Palm Coast City Hall, pictured left, had its grand opening on November 3, 2015. It is located at 160 Lake Avenue, Palm Coast, in Town Center.
