About the event
DUBOIS PIONEER HOME BACKGROUND:
- Built in 1898, the DuBois Pioneer Home is one of the last remaining historic homesteads of its type in unincorporated northern Palm Beach County. Located along the Jupiter Inlet in Palm Beach County’s DuBois Park, “the house on the hill” is an excellent example of a self-sufficient South Florida Pioneer homestead. Built atop of a Native American shell rock midden by the DuBois Family (one of Jupiter’s most notable pioneer families) this unique homestead is rich in both historic and archeological value.
- Originally over 600 feet long and 20 feet high, the Hill is a remnant of one of the last coastal shell mounds in southeast Florida. Artifacts dating back several thousand years have been discovered at this site. The entire Park was once a thriving village, where ancient Floridians lived.
