Hobe Sound in Martin County, Florida


Hobe Sound is the southern part of Martin County.  Located on the Atlantic Coast, south of Stuart amd north of Jupiter, Hobe Sound stretches along the coast between Port Salerno and Jonathan Dickinson State Park and includes Jupiter Island (one of the most prestigious and expensive places to live in the entire United States). The western border is not clearly defined though most development drops off only a few miles inland at Powerline Road where the current urban services boundary ends.

Hobe Sound was named after the Jove or Jobe Indians, a Native American group that occupied the area prior to the arrival of European explorers.  The Spanish pronounced it 'Ho-bay' and the name has now evolved to be Hobe (pronounced as it would rhyme with robe).

The earliest recorded European contact appears to be from 1696 when the British ship 'Reformation' sailing from Jamaica to Philadelphia sank in the area.  The 25 passengers and crew made it ashore and received aid from the Jove Indians.  One of the notable passengers, Jonathan Dickenson, was a passenger on the Reformation and now a beautiful large park and nature preserve in Hobe Sound, bears his name.

It was just after the start of the 20th century that Hobe Sound started to grow with the Florida East Coast Railroad of Henry Flagler coming through the area.

Gabe,

Read it with great nterest. Heard Hobe a couple of times, but do not know the area, whihc is a shame for a floridian.

Before the journey on horse carriage was painfully slow, but you saw the surrounding world. Noe it is more like a math task, where you select the shortest distance between point A and point B, and take I-95 form Daytna to Miami and see nothing in between

Hi Gabe - That is a great presentation.  I like the nature right up to the water's edge...  We don't see that often in my part of Florida.  I also did not know the correct pronunciation of Hobe!
