About the Neighborhood

The El Cid Neighborhood had its beginnings in 1875 when Benjamin Lainhart, the first permanent resident of the western shore of Lake Worth, built a cabin near Barcelona Road. The neighborhood came of age 50 years later during the 1920’s Florida land boom.

The El Cid District is listed on the local, State, and National Register of Historic Places. With a concentration of outstanding period architecture combined with the community’s dedication to preserving its history, the neighborhood attracts professionals and business owners proud to call El Cid home.
