This week in history: Gulf Stream incorporated

The town of Gulf Stream, incorporated on May 12, 1925, was established as a sporting enclave for the wealthy when brothers John Shaffer Phipps and Howard Phipps founded the Gulf Stream Polo Club in 1923, and Paris Singer and other Palm Beachers built the Addison Mizner-designed Gulf Stream Golf Club the following year. The Phipps family sold the polo grounds in the early 1960s, and it later moved to its current location off Lake Worth Road west of the Florida Turnpike, where it’s now known as Gulfstream Polo Club.
