Fishing Town of Jupiter Florida History
The area that includes the Town of Jupiter, Florida was called Jobe (Hoe-bay) by the Spanish, for the nearby Indian village. When the English arrived in 1763, they interpreted the name as Jove and referred to the area as Jupiter (in ancient mythology, Jove and Jupiter refer to the same god).
Fort Jupiter was built in 1838 after a battle with Seminole Indians on the Loxahatchee River . The 9,088-acre Jupiter Military Reservation that was created around it in 1855 included the site of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and the location of the second Fort Jupiter where the Fort Jupiter Post Office was activated from 1855 to 1856, during the Third Seminole War. The garrison's chronic illness and the inlet's tendency to close made the fort too difficult to man or supply and it was closed in 1860.
Lighthouse keeper James Armour opened the Jupiter Post Office briefly during 1884. Three years of inactivity followed before Mary Moore "Mollie" Carlin reestablished the office in 1887 at the Jupiter Lifesaving Station , where her husband, Charles Carlin, was the keeper.
The DuBois family is one of Jupiter's pioneer families; their former homestead, on the south side of Jupiter Inlet once known as Stone's Point, is now part of Palm Beach County's DuBois Park and reveals much about life in early Jupiter. John Rue DuBois, the eldest son of Harry and Susan Sanders DuBois , carefully preserved artifacts found on their property, which were later examined by the Florida State Museum. (read more)
Fishing City of Stuart, Florida History
Stuart, Florida was first settled in 1870. Incorporated 1914. Chartered 1925. Known as the County seat, Stuart, Florida was originally named Potsdam from 1893 to 1896 and was named by Otto Stypman one of the earliest settlers of Stuart, Florida (History of Martin County, by Janet Hutchinson) Otto Stypman and his brother, Ernest, came here in 1892 and were originally from Potsdam, Germany. The Stypman brothers originally owned what is now known as "Downtown Stuart", and were large landowners. They started their fortunes here in pineapple farming. The name was changed to Stuart, Florida after the FEC railroad was established and was named after Homer Hine Stuart, Jr., another early settler. Click here to learn more about Stuart, Florida. Stuart has a rich fishing history as well.
West Palm Beach, Florida
When Henry Morrison Flagler first came here in 1893, he called the Lake Worth, Flordia region "a veritable paradise" and decided upon a dual plan for the area. He would turn Palm Beach, Florida into a resort and he would build a commercial city across the lake for his workers. That "worker city" would become beautiful West Palm Beach, Florida.
Flagler had his city laid out in November 1893, naming the streets for native plants. Running east and west were Althea, Banyan, Clematis, Datura, Evernia and Fern streets. North-South avenues were Lantana, Myrtle, Narcissus, Olive, Poinsettia (now Dixie Highway), Rosemary, Sapodilla and Tamarind. On Nov. 5, 1894, by a vote of 77 to 1, residents of the little town decided to incorporate the city of West Palm Beach. It soon became a bustling frontier town with storefronts along Clematis and Narcissus streets, and saloons lining Banyan Street. Banyan Street became as wild and well-known as any raucous town in the Wild West. It was so notorious that famed anti-alcohol crusader Carry Nation visited in 1904, wielding her Bible. (read more)
Singer Island, Florida
The first record of a settlement on Singer Island, Florida dates back to 1906 with Inlet City. Inlet City was a spontaneous community of fishermen and squatters, most of whom came from nearby Riviera Beach, Florida and the Bahamas. Fishermen were attracted to the island as a place to dry the cotton nets that they used in those days, and for its proximity to the fertile Gulf Stream (the waters of the Gulf Stream are closer to land on Singer Island, Florida than any other place in North America!).
Singer Island, Florida was named for Paris Eugene Singer, the famous developer of Palm Beach and 23rd child of Isaac Singer, the sewing machine magnate (Paris also fathered a son with legendary dancer Isadora Duncan in 1910*). In 1920, he visited Palm Beach, Florida and met Addison Mizner. He agreed to pay the architect a $6,000 a year retainer for life if his work was confined exclusively to the Palm Beach, Florida area. With Mizner, he created the Palm Beach we know today with its Spanish architecture, picturesque streets and exclusive shops. Singer often took his friends on picnics to the beautiful island directly north of Palm Beach, Florida. In anticipation of the Florida real estate boom, he and Mizner planned to develop a luxurious resort (the Paris Singer Hotel) on the south end of the island and a modest hotel (the Blue Heron) on the north end with a 36 hole golf course between the two structures.
