Palm Island Homes History:

At the same time that the County Causeway (today’s MacArthur Causeway) was under construction just prior to 1920, The Biscayne Bay Islands Company bought the submerged land on its northern side and created what we now know as Palm and Hibiscus Islands. The filling of Palm Island first began June of 1919 and was completed in June of 1921. In 1922, the Palm Island Club was built on the north side of the Island, at the entrance of the bridge leading to Hibiscus Island. It was known to operate as an illegal gambling and drinking establishment during the time of prohibition. In 1934, once prohibition had ended, it was transformed into a nightclub. First, it was Bouche’s Villa Venice, before ultimately becoming the Latin Quarter, run by Lou Walters (father of journalist Barbara Walters). The Latin Quarter famously showcased the major entertainers of the time, including Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean Martin, and Tony Bennett.
