The History of Abacoa

Have you ever wondered how the neighborhoods in your own backyard first came to be?

Who discovered this plot of land, and who envisioned the original landscape that has now developed over the years?

How do you begin to search for a forever home when you barely know your surrounding area?

As future homeowners begin to ponder these questions, the team at BSR Realty Group decided to do our own research and provide content that both enriches and teaches our clients and future clients about the history of our beloved local communities. Picking a place to call “home” is a difficult challenge, so it’s essential to know the history behind the neighborhood you are considering setting down in.

This month, BSR Realty Group chose to highlight the History of Abacoa, a lovely neighborhood known for community, engagement, and sunny Florida experiences.

Nestled in the heart of Jupiter lies Abacoa. This wondrous, 2,055-acre community was the first Indian Village and was one of Ponce De Leon’s first encounters with the Native Americans. This fact presents an interesting background story for the neighborhood of Abacoa that the community would carry for years.

Beginning construction in 1997, this land was once owned by John D. MacArthur, Palm Beach Gardens’ founder. The plan was to produce 20 residential neighborhoods, 20 commercial districts, two college campuses, two science research and development campuses, and more. The idea was to create an environment that linked everyone together without creating a vacuum. This exceptional strategy linked Abacoa to a family-friendly atmosphere and provided everything a homeowner would need in one centralized, convenient location.

Shopping, dining, beaches, and entertainment venues are a plus when searching for a place to live. Thankfully, Abacoa has many unique amenities within its little alcove.

Abacoa is home to 6,073 residences that make up single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and workspaces. This neighborhood is the perfect place for work, fun, homelife, entertainment, and more. From hanging out at the local restaurants and bars to watching a game at Roger Dean Stadium, this community has everything you need to create an artfully well-rounded life for you and your family. Grab a nice meal, walk your dog, engage in a round of golf with friends, and enjoy the beauty and fun that Abacoa has to offer for all who are on the hunt for that once-in-a-lifetime community.
