Historical Landmarks of Jupiter

No other location on the East Coast of the United States enjoys the international reputation for guiding ships throughout the centuries, as does the area now known as Jupiter.

Early settlers relied on the bounty of the Loxahatchee River and access to the Atlantic to provide their living, while it is tourism, boating and sport fishing that attract residents and visitors to these bodies of water today.

    Loxahatchee River Battlefield Park is one of the most significant multi-level historic sites in Palm Beach County. Gateway to the Loxahatchee River, prehistoric and historic habitation has occurred along the Loxahatchee dating as far back as the Archaic Period over 5,000 years ago. The primary goal of the park is to preserve and protect these cultural resources, while providing education and passive recreation opportunities for the public to experience this beautiful place and its history.
