Our history in photos: Northwood Hotel


Undated Palm Beach Post photo of the Northwood Hotel building at the corner of Northwood Road and North Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. Click here to see the current Google Street View.

We’ll take any guesses as to the date, but it’s probably somewhere in the early 1970s. City directories list the Reis Morgan 5 & 10 Store at 405 Northwood Rd. — right where it is in the photo — until 1975. Before that it was W.W. Mac Co. 5¢ to $1.00.

A 1925 ad in The Palm Beach Post announces the beginning of construction. Click on the image to view a larger version.

From The Palm Beach Post, October 1, 1925.
