Palm Beach Maritime Museum
Palm Beach Maritime Museum on Peanut Island used to be the Coast Guard Station and is only accessible by ferry boat. This unique eighty acre park is situated on the Intracoastal Waterway near the Lake Worth Inlet in close proximity to Phil Foster Park, the City of Riviera Beach, and the Port of Palm Beach. See Mapquest for directions.
Peanut Island was originally created in 1918 as a result of material excavated when the Lake Worth Inlet was created. Originally called Inlet Island, Peanut Island amounted to only ten (10) acres. The name Peanut was given to the island when the State gave permission for use of the island as a terminal for shipping peanut oil. The building on Peanut Island was also used as a Coast Guard Station. The Secret Service took over this building in the 60s, when JFK built the old John F. Kennedy Bomb Shelter. The Palm Beach Maritime Museum opened in 1999 following a six year restoration and construction program.
The Palm Beach Maritime Museum is only accessible by water and consists of five floors. The basement and bar area, the 1st floor watchstanders office and TV/Rec room, the 2nd floor petty officer sleeping quarters, the 3rd floor sleeping quarters, and the 4th floor watch tower. Many have witnessed orbs with the naked eye in the 3rd floor sleeping quarters, and have also experienced temperature fluctuations, disembodied voices, and mysterious sounds which can not be accounted for. Few have seen shadow figures.
