Formerly known as Mulberry Farms, which was then owned by State Senator Philip Lewis, Atlantis stands on land once used as part of Lewis' Mission Company to raise Brahman cattle.
Part of the farm was eventually sold to Nathan Hunt and Paul Kintz, who later on developed the land to become one of the country’s most beautiful country club communities.
The neighborhood achieved its cityhood in 1959, with James Kintz standing in as first mayor together with Nathan Hunt as vice mayor.
The Atlantis Inn is one of the community's earliest developments, together with the Golf Clubhouse and its 18-hole golf course.
Around Atlantis runs Lantana Road towards the south, the Lake Worth Drainage District L-14 Canal to the north, eastbound South Congress Avenue, and Military Trail towards the west.
To this day, the Atlantis community maintains its integrity in urban planning. In fact, the city holds a strict zoning policy that dedicates 43% of its total land area to recreation and open space. Residential properties occupy 46.8%, while 10.2% are for commercial and office space.
The commercial space is mainly occupied by the JFK Medical Center, which is also the major source of employment for the community and its neighboring cities.
The Atlantis Country Club is a picturesque private resort that is open to the public year-round. It features an 18-hole Championship golf course and a fine dining restaurant.
The city is also close to the John Prince Park campground, and the Palm Beach County Park and Lantana Airport are also only a short drive away.
