Lake Worth Memories:
Mr. and Mrs. W.D. Rayl ( Bill and Evia), moved to 7409 Apache Trail in 1941, along with their son Joe who at that time was thirteen (13) years old. After moving into the house, they discovered twenty (20 ) or thirty (30) shortwave ship-to-shore radios in an upstairs room that was used as a workshop. It was rumored at that time that the previous owners were believed to be German spies; therefore the

Rayl's contacted the proper authorities and never heard anything more about the radios.

Mr. and Mrs. Rayl passed some time ago and left the property to their children. The land was donated to the City of Lake Worth in 2000 by the heirs of Willy and Evia Rayl for the use of a city park.
