The Media release for the Centennial 2011:
From 1895 to 1898, the area west of the Intracoastal Waterway (called the "Canal" by settlers) was known as the Town of Linton. This was changed to the Town of Delray, named after the hometown of some of the early settlers, with the hope that the name "Delray" would inspire a new beginning of prosperity and growth.
On September 4, 1911, a public meeting was held at the Ladies Improvement Association Hall for the purpose of discussing the incorporation of the Town of Delray. An election was held on October 9, 1911, resulting in 56 of 57 votes (one abstained) in favor of incorporation. In the early 1920s, the Town Council changed the name from the Town of Delray to the City of Delray. In 1923 the land east of the Intracoastal Waterway was incorporated as Delray Beach and in 1927 the City of Delray and Delray Beach merged to form the City of Delray Beach.
