On Oct. 10, 2006 voters in the rural community of Loxahatchee Groves approved incorporation by a vote of 458 to 350. Founded in 1917, Loxahatchee Groves is the oldest of the western communities and gets its name from the Seminole words for turtle river — Lowchow and hatchee — and the acres of citrus groves that occupied the land prior to settlement.
