Juno was the predecessor of Juno Beach. It arose as a late nineteenth century transportation terminal linking northern Florida by the Indian River and Jupiter to Lake Worth in southern Florida.
The Jupiter and Lake Worth Railway had taken over the hack line between Jupiter and Juno which became known as the “Celestial Railway.” In the same year, Henry Flagler began development of Palm Beach which led to the demise of Juno and the Celestial Railway. The demise of nineteenth century Juno was followed by the rise of twentieth century Juno Beach.
E.F. Hutton began construction of the famous Seminole Golf Club.
Bessemer Properties, Inc., bought a tract of land adjoining Seminole Golf Course and platted it as a subdivision in 1948. Bessemer dredged a pond and built a 500 foot fishing pier at the end of Mercury Way. The pond, ocean pier and subdivision improvements opened the Town for planned development.
