If you are from Jupiter or Palm Beach County you can probably reminisce about your memories splashing in the water and swimming through the natural lagoon that is DuBois Park. Many of us have had picnics and long summer days at this iconic Jupiter beach park, but did you know how significant DuBois historically?
Dubois Park is the site of the Harry and Susan Dubois Pioneer Home. It is the second oldest house standing in Palm Beach County. This historic icon of Jupiter was made of Florida pine and had cypress shingles; which over the years were replaced with cedar shingles. The interior walls were fastened tongue and groove, and set on a diagonal for additional strength. The north county old pioneer home has attracted the attention of history buffs from Jupiter, south Florida and the rest of the nation. The DuBois pioneer home was originally built in 1898 and has now been preserved as a historic site, which is part of DuBois Park. The National Register of Historical Places deemed this pioneer home to have been built on an American Indian mound, and will forever remain a chronological and archeological gem!
