Greenacres is located in the state of Florida and a city in the central area of Palm Beach County. 1n 1909, thousands of acres of lands in the Everglades and those that are situated along the coast of Lake Worth were purchased. The men who bought it then sold the area to buyers that are located all over the United States and Canada, wherein they have been offering 5 acres plots $250, wherein a $10 downpayment and $10 per month charge. With the difficulties in farming involved in the Everglades then forces the 308 buyers to settle instead in their properties that are located along Lake Worth, the present-day area of Lake Worth City. With the land boom that started in the 1920s, these lots were then effectively abandoned by the settlers. The city is close to the major cities of Lake Worth and Wellington.
