A portion of Indiantown Road between US 1 and A1A has officially been named after the late hometown hero Burt Reynolds.
To residents of Jupiter, Burt Reynolds was more than just an actor, he was to Jupiter what Eastwood is to Carmel and Schwarzenegger is to California, except that Reynolds never got into politics.
In many ways Reynolds is the man who put Jupiter on the map. Still to this day it’s not uncommon to hear that the sole thing people (mainly from up north) know about Jupiter is its affiliation with the late, great acting legend.
Reynolds’ history with the town of Jupiter stretches way back into the 70s when he was at the top of Hollywood and would travel with other stars to vacation at his 100-plus acre ranch in Jupiter Farms. The land has since been developed into a quaint little community called ‘Reynolds Ranch.’
