These settlers were a diverse community from different parts of the United States and the world.The town council quickly addressed the building codes and the tents and shanties were replaced by brick, brick veneer, and stone buildings.The city grew steadily during the 1890s and the first two decades of the 20th century, most residents were engaged in the tourist industry and related services or winter vegetable market and tropical fruit trade.
