The Neighborhood

Jupiter Island was incorporated in 1953. It adapts a manager-council form of governance with a Town Manager taking care of all the affairs of the community.

The town has three separate departments: the Beach Protection District, Town Commission and the South Martin Regional Utility (SMRU).

Seminole Indians and Ais were the first inhabitants of the area during the 1800s. Known as the Gomez Grant, the King and Queen of Spain awarded Don Eusebio Gomez a vast area of land that surrounds the Indian River and the Loxahatchee River. The area’s name was originally known as the Jobe, which was later on Anglicized to Hobe Sound. Jupiter Island was then named as Jupiter as a Spanish translation of the term Jobe.

By 1821, Gomez sold 8,000 acres of his land to several individuals, while the remaining 4,000 acres remained under his ownership.

For a couple of years, several property developers fought for the land ownership all in the hopes of developing the area.

To date, Jupiter Island remains a peaceful and quiet neighborhood home to only a few permanent residents. Many of the properties in the town are second-homes of its owners and are only used as a vacation destination.
