HISTORY - Jupiter is rich in history with the earliest known records of the Jupiter Inlet dating to 1565. When Spanish explorers first arrived in this area, they found the Jega Indians living along the banks of the Jupiter Inlet and Loxahatchee River. The Indians called themselves the Jobe. When English settlers found the area in 1763, Jobe sounded to them like the mythological god Jove, or Jupiter, and the name remains today. The Jupiter area first came to widespread public attention when Johathan Dickinson, the namesake of nearby Johnathan Dickinson State park (and my great, great, great uncle), was shipwrecked on the shore of Jupiter and narrowly escaped death at the hands of the hostile Indians. Today, the DuBois Museum in DuBois Park stands atop the Indian mound described by Dickinson as the place where his family was held captive. In the 1800's Jupiter's most identifiable landmark, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, was erected. The lighthouse stands 108 feet tall with 105 steps to climb.
