Juno Beach History
The town of Juno Beach is located on a barrier island along the Atlantic coastal ridge, which was created when the Intracoastal Waterway was dredged in the late 1800s. In the late 1920’s, the original US Highway 1 (which is now A1A) was built along the ocean and five years later Juno Beach arose along the Atlantic shore when a small group of motel and tourist court owners settled there. Edward Francis Hutton began development of the 140-acre Seminole Golf Club in 1929. The famous private course would later be frequented by many celebrities including John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Bing Crosby, and Arnold Palmer. The population of the town was a mere 130-year round residents in 1953, which swelled to 1,500 during the winter season. After its incorporation in 1953, more residential development followed, and in 1958, the ladies of the Juno Beach Garden Club took on the project of naming its streets, choosing mythological gods and goddesses.
