History and how Juno Beach came to be named after a goddess

Juno Beach is located on a man-made island along the Atlantic coastal ridge. Spanish wrecks from late 1500's to early 1600's lay on the ocean bottom not too far from the beach. The barrier island came about as a result of the creation of part of the Intracoastal Waterway in 1898.  The Atlantic Ocean with its blue water and the Intracoastal add to the attraction of Juno Beach as a place to live and a place to visit. 

 Juno was the predecessor of Juno Beach. It arose as a late 19th century transportation terminal linking northern Florida by the Indian River and Jupiter to Lake Worth in southern Florida. This little town was the County Seat of a much larger than today's Dade County from 1890 to 1900.

The Jupiter and Lake Worth Railway had taken over the railroad line between Jupiter and Juno.  This was called the "Celestial Railway." In the same year, Henry Flagler began development of Palm Beach.  This was the death knell of the Juno and the Celestial Railway. The demise of nineteenth century Juno was followed by the rise of twentieth century Juno Beach.
