Manalapan is a town in Palm Beach County, Florida, United States.

United States President Benjamin Harrison granted George H. K. Carter a homestead in 1889 on the yet unnamed land.[3] In 1931, the sparsely populated settlement was incorporated by Harold Stirling Vanderbilt as the “Town of Manalapan”, which is thought to be named after Manalapan Township, New Jersey.[3]

One of the most puzzling mysteries in Florida history was the disappearance of Circuit Judge Curtis Chillingworth who left a friend’s home on the night of 14 June 1955, and went to their ocean-front cottage in Manalapan.[4]

The U.S. presidential yacht Sequoia was auctioned at the La Coquille Club in Manalapan on 25 March 1977 during the Carter administration, for US$270,000, as a symbolic cutback in Federal Government spending (annual cost to the U.S. Navy was $800,000) and to reduce signs of an “imperial presidency”.[5]

The popular tourist restaurant, John G’s moved to Manalapan in 2011 from its location in Lake Worth where it had been for 30+ years.
