Runaway slaves fled to Florida in antebellum times and freed slaves entered Florida after the Civil War to begin new lives as farmers. Florida became the 27th state to join the Union in1845. Military maps of the Seminole Wars (1850′s) depict a natural barrier island. The beach area, called Orange Grove Haulover, named after a nearby orange grove, is now the City of Delray Beach. The Orange Grove House of Refuge, built by the United States Life-Saving Service (a predecessor of the United States Coast Guard), was to assist survivors of shipwrecks off the coast.
