Established in 2002, White Glove enjoys being a Palm City moving company. Known as the gateway to Martin County, it is just west of the ocean and Stuart yet surrounded by lots of waterways and near the Turnpike and I-95. Certainly, Palm City is a great place to live or just visit. With great shopping, beautiful nature and proximity to the beach, it’s the perfect spot to relax and enjoy all that Florida has to offer. Popular with families, Palm City offers several breathtaking parks including: Leighton Park, Jock Leighton Park has a skate park, playground, and Lance Corporal Justin Wilson Memorial Park. Additionally, it is close to Jensen Beach, Hobe Sound, Indiantown and Stuart; all making up Martin County.
Yet, to appreciate all its amenities today, we must know its rich past. In 1912, the Florida real estate boom was gathering steam. Hence, Charles Chillingworth and his partner, Harry C. Feroe, bought the land where early Palm City would rise on the South Fork of the St. Lucie River. To help with sales, they copied the approach of Benjamin Mumford, who founded what is now Port Salerno. Thus, offering a house lot in the city to anyone who bought 10 acres for a farm. As a result, many people bought their land unseen, packed their belongings and moved to Florida hoping to start a new life.
In the early 1900’s, one of the drawbacks of the community was transportation. Due to mud and sand, the river was the preferred highway. So, a ferry carried people across the South Fork of the St. Lucie River to go to school, shop or seek medical care in Stuart. First, a wooden bridge, then a four-lane, high-rise, concrete bridge have been built to span the river during the community’s 100+ years. Today, a second bridge crossing the South Fork, the Veterans Memorial Bridge, is in use to help alleviate traffic. Consequently, Palm City grew slowly but steadily. In 1925, Gov. John Martin signed the act creating the new county named for him and Palm City became part of Martin County, leaving Palm Beach County. The next year, Florida Power & Light Co. brought regular electric service to the region. From the 1940-1970’s, Palm City became a major center of the cut flower industry, shipping chrysanthemums, roses, lilies across the nation. Yet, it was the exit off the Florida turnpike and first subdivision, Pelican Cove, in 1953 that changed the town’s landscape from rural and agricultural to upscale residential. Of course, people moved differently back then yet as Palm City movers, we enjoy being able to sponsor events that focus on the community’s history.
