History

The Jupiter area boasts a rich, colorful history. Earliest records date back to 1565, when the Spanish first came to this part of Florida. The explorers found the native Jobe tribe living along the banks of the inlet and the river. They called the tribe the "Jove" which English-speaking colonists thought was the Latin name for the god Jupiter. 

Jutting further into the Atlantic Ocean than any other area along Florida's east coast, Jupiter has been a port of call for sailors, settlers, and tourists for many centuries.  Before the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse began sending lights of warning to those sailing the Atlantic in 1860, Spanish explorers, Black and Seminole inhabitants, and early American pioneers started their own histories there, contributing to the history-awareness and pride of Jupiter residents today. 

The Jupiter area first came to wide spread public attention when Jonathan Dickinson was shipwrecked on the shores of Jupiter. Dickinson was a Quaker merchant, who was shipwrecked on the southeast coast 1696, along with his family and the other passengers and crew members. The party was held captive by the Ais tribe for several days, and then allowed to travel by small boat and on foot the 230 miles up the coast to Saint Augustine. The ordeal was written into a popular book by Dickinson. Jonathan Dickinson State Park, named after this early visitor to Jupiter, was opened in 1950.

In 1860, Jupiter's most identifiable landmark, the Jupiter Lighthouse, was built. This now red-painted lighthouse continues to be in use.
