Jupiter Florida Real Estate and History
Jupiter, FL is a town rich with history; Jupiter is the outermost eastern point of land in the state of Florida. Jupiter’s history dates back to the late 1500’s when Spanish explorers found the Jega Indians living along the banks of the Inlet River (now known as the Loxahatchee River); this was its only outlet for this into the Atlantic Ocean. The river was first shown on explorer’s maps in the late 1600’s. On Spanish maps the river was shown as the Jobe River.
The English interpretation of Jobe was Jove which, in turn, later became Jupiter. In 1853 the U.S. Congress authorized the building of the Jupiter Lighthouse, which today remains a historic landmark. The Jupiter Lighthouse stands 105 feet tall and is built on top of a 46 foot hill located on the north shore of the Jupiter Inlet. Today Jupiter real estate is home to many exclusive communities like Admiral’s Cove, Bears Club, Ritz Carlton, and Jonathan’s Landing to name a few.
