Historic Preservation

The City of Lake Worth is dedicated to integrating historic preservation into the local planning process and to increasing public awareness of our community’s unique history.  In 1996, the City Commission adopted a Historic Preservation ordinance designed to protect the City’s historic built environment by instituting a design review process overseen by the volunteer Historic Resources Preservation Board.  Since adoption, Lake Worth has designated six local historic districts and four structures significant to the local history with several recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.
