Where are some of the oldest homes in Lake Worth?

LAKE WORTH — For more than a year, the Historical Society of Lake Worth has been looking for the oldest houses in the city.

The society is ready to raise the curtain on the winners, which will be announced at an awards ceremony Wednesday at 7 p.m., at the Lake Worth Casino ballroom.

The city will also be handing out awards in various preservation categories. The society is co-sponsoring the event with Lake Worth’s Preservation Division and the community sustainability department.

The group knew where many of the homes are, but it welcomed nominations. The houses must meet the city’s standards of a historic property. The project is part of the society’s activities to mark National Historic Preservation Month.
