Facts about Lantana
Lantana is a town in Palm Beach County, Florida, United States. The population was 10,423 at the 2010 United States Census.
The first settlers came to the area after Congress passed the Armed Occupation Act of 1842 at the end of the Seminole Wars during the Administration of President John Tyler. The M.B. Lyman family is credited with founding the town. Lyman arrived with his family in 1888 and within a year started several enterprises including a general store, Indian Trading Post and a post office.
