Discover Indiantown & Palm City
Indiantown is named after the Seminole Indians who settled there in the early 1800s. Though the city is small in population and size, it boasts a rich and colorful history that includes connections to English royalty and the filming of Hollywood movies, and it is the birthplace of the only female Seminole tribal leader, Betty Mae Tiger Jumper. Unique to the rest of Martin County, Indiantown is situated in the heart of Florida’s cattle and citrus country. Here the charmingly restored Seminole Inn captures the twilight grandeur of “Old Florida.” Nature lovers can enjoy the great outdoors at Dupuis Reserve State Forest, J & R Outfitters or Allapattah Flats. Indiantown is a short drive to the shores of Port Mayaca where you can see a waterfront sunset while still on the East Coast. Indiantown is also home to Payson Park, one of the top Thoroughbred horse racing facilities in the United States.
