Jupiter is a city located on the southeastern portion of the modern-day U.S. state of Florida’s protuberance.  Prior to European interference, this area was inhabited by the Hobe people, who lived at the mouth of the Loxahatchee River.  In fact, the town was originally named after this tribe, but according to The Palm Beach Post, “a mapmaker ‘misunderstood’ the Spanish spelling “Jobe” of the Native American name “Hobe” and recorded it as “Jove.”  Later mapmakers further complicated the situation by assuming “Jove” meant the Latin translation for the Roman god Jupiter.  Long story short: the name stuck!  The town of Jupiter, Florida was officially incorporated on February 9th, 1925.

Today, according to a 2015 estimate by the U.S. Census Bureau, the city of Jupiter, Florida has a total population of 62,707 people.  Jupiter, Florida is also considered one of the northernmost communities in the Miami metropolitan area.  According to that same 2015 U.S. Census Bureau estimate, the Miami metropolitan area has a total population of 6,012,331 people.  The Miami Metropolitan area is the eighth largest metropolitan area in the United States and the 67th largest metropolitan area in the world.

In 2012, Coastal Living ranked Jupiter, Florida ninth on its list of “Happiest Seaside Towns in America.”  One of the town’s most notable points of interest is the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.  In fact, this lighthouse is often used as a stand-in for the symbol of Jupiter, Florida itself.

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as being considered an “Outstanding Natural Area,” was first constructed and lit in 1860.  Designed by then Lieutenant George G. Meade of the Bureau of Topographical Engineers and completed under the supervision of Captain Edward A. Yorke, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse’s tower soars 105 feet (32 m) into the air, or 153 feet (47 m) above sea level.  The lighthouse has a range of 25 nautical miles (46 km; 29 miles).
