Harry Kelsey, Community Developer

(1879–1957)

A Boston entrepreneur, Kelsey envisioned a South Florida winter retreat for wealthy northerners in 1919. Florida’s first planned community named Kelsey City came to fruition in 1921, and eventually became the Town of Lake Park in 1939. At his peak he owned 120,000 acres and fourteen miles of oceanfront between Miami and Jupiter.
