ABOUT HYPOLUXO

Hypoluxo is nestled in the heart of Palm Beach County, Florida, on the shores of the Intracoastal Waterway. We are just minutes from West Palm Beach and a mere stone's throw from the sandy Atlantic beaches. 

Our administration facility is built in the old Key West style. Nature buffs will want to visit our Hammock located south of the administation building. It is a natural enclave of 100% indigenous plant species.  The town also has two other parks.  The "Parks Page" on this site offers more information on all of the town facilities. 

In the 1990 census, Hypoluxo was recorded as having 830 residents, in 1997 - 1,371 residents, in 2000 - 2,015 residents and in 2009 the population grew to 2,427 residents. Hypoluxo is located at 26.56255 North latitude, 80.05257 West longitude.

The name Hypoluxo comes from the Seminole name for Lake Worth, roughly translated "water all 'round -- no get out." The lake was later renamed in honor of Seminole Indian War colonel William Jerkins Worth. However, the name "Hypoluxo" still was associated with the area on the south shores of the lake, as evidenced by its appearance on a 1841 War Department map.  Check out our history page to find out more about Hypoluxo's famed "Barefoot Mailmen".
