About Looking Back

Looking Back began as a blog that focused mainly on the Village of North Palm Beach, which was founded in 1956 and continues to maintain its small-town atmosphere despite the continual development of the Palm Beach area. The blog will continue to bring you new posts on North Palm Beach history.

This website is also being expanded to include much more Florida history, and is a collaboration between Rosa Sophia (who served as Village Historian between 2010 and 2014) and Ruby Lynn Holden (Village Historian of North Palm Beach from 2014 to 2018).

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

The purpose of this site is to raise awareness of local history, and we hope that you will share posts with your friends, and anyone else who is interested in Florida’s fascinating history!

Happy Reading,

Ruby & Rosa
