History

Back when Dade County covered 7200 square miles, from north of Jupiter to south of Biscayne Bay, the tiny Village of Juno, located between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, was the County seat.

From 1890-1900, Juno served all of Dade County, including its 720 residents, as courthouse and county government. As the southern most stop on the Celestial Railroad - named for its stops at Juno, Venus, Mars and Jupiter - Juno was Dade’s link to Northern Florida.

Juno’s short lived notoriety ended when the Celestial Railway was sold at auction in 1896 and Miami later reclaimed the county seat in 1900. But, the beautiful little community by the sea would see a rebirth as a resort and seaside community when Henry M. Flagler fulfilled his mission to connect Key West and the U.S. mainland with his Florida East Coast Railway.

Today, the Town of Juno Beach, incorporated in 1953, has become an ideal vacation and retirement retreat.
