History The Story of Jupiter and its Neighbors The “Jupiter History Web” is a volunteer project in cooperation with the Town of Jupiter Information Systems Department, which provides space for the site. The History Web Committee’s goal is to build a store of historical information available for all to share, and the interest in history extends beyond the town limits to its nearby neighbors. On Our Site This site contains a history timeline with stories and articles about the area ranging from the ancient Indians, through the European discovery of the area by Ponce de Leon, to the Seminole Indian War battles fought here. The timeline also covers the building of the Jupiter lighthouse, early railroad history, and has a wealth of information on early pioneer history from the late 19th century, continuing on to the Town of Jupiter’s official founding and life in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
For this month, read about a Pioneer Story, by Dora Doster Utz. Be a Contributor We are always looking for interesting stories and information about Jupiter’s history and its pioneers.

You can also upload your personal story, photograph, post-card and etc. via a submission form. The Historic FEC Railroad Depot is under restoration at its location in Sawfish Bay Park. The building itself tells a story of its structural changes. However, if anyone has pictures of this structure from its erection in 1915, and particularly in the time period of the 1940’s to 1950’s, we would love to hear from you to possibly scan the photos and learn more about the building’s changes over the years. Just send us an email at the Town Archives. Jupiter U History Tour Map
