A Report From The South Florida Sun-Sentinel on the popularity of Historical society Web sites, such as the Boca Raton and Palm Beach County ones.

In addition to the international appeal of the Mizner architecture, many former city residents use the site, Jones said. The gift shop has filled orders from Boca Raton pioneers who live out of state, and online ordering is expected to prove popular as people learn that it is available, Jones said. So far, volunteers have been able to handle the orders.
