The “Ride & Remember” Historical Tour takes riders on a journey through Delray Beach’s five historic districts. Riders will tour the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum and two other locations. The tour will stop at select historic sites for a closer look at the area’s fascinating history. Illustrated with colorful stories of the personalities and happenings that influenced the growth of the city, the tour does more than relay facts – it draws the riders back in time.

What Are Delray Beach’s 5 Historic Districts?

West Settlers

Established in 1894, the West Settlers area is the site of the first African-American settlement in Delray Beach. African Americans from the north and west Florida, Georgia and South Carolina were the first non-Native Americans in the area, laying the foundation of a strong agricultural economy in the region.

Del-Ida Park 

Recorded in 1923, Del-Ida Park was one of Delray Beach’s earliest planned neighborhoods. Del-Ida Park’s unusual diagonal arrangement of streets, triangular lots, and public parks are unique when contrasted with the grid pattern layout of the remainder of the city. This imaginative street layout was designed to create a sense of space and maintain a park-like atmosphere.

Nassau Park 

Nassau Park, Delray Beach’s first locally designated historic district, spans two blocks along Nassau Street from South Ocean Boulevard to Venetian Drive. In 1935, a newspaper ad for Ray-Del Realty Co. described Nassau Park as “West Indian Charm Along Delray Shores.”

Marina

Primarily developed between 1922 and 1943, the Marina Historic District displays a variety of architectural styles including Mediterranean and Mission Revival, Monterey, Minimal Traditional, Frame Vernacular and Art Moderne. The prominent neighborhood showcases some of the area’s most accomplished architects.

Old School Square

Old School Square Historic District represents the initial footprint for the settlement and development of Delray Beach. The architectural and historical development that gave Delray Beach a prominent status in Palm Beach County can be seen in examples of turn- of-the-century frame architecture found along South Swinton Avenue such as the “Sundy House.”
