History of Hobe Sound
Hobe Sound was home to the Native American Jove tribe before Europeans made contact in 1669, when the British ship Reformation sank on its voyage from Jamaica to Philadelphia. The 25 crew members who survived the event encountered the Jove and ultimately received aid. By 1699, the territory received its name.
During the early 1900s, Henry Flagler’s railroad built along Florida’s east coast brought economic opportunity to Hobe Sound, spurring tourism and other commercial industries. The Olympia Improvement Corporation sought to fashion Hobe Sound as a motion picture production center with Greco-Roman-inspired themes, such as streets bearing the names of the Olympian gods, during the Florida land boom. The city adopted the name “Picture City,” but was eventually restored following the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane and subsequent collapse of the boom.
Today, Hobe Sound enjoys a secluded existence with a predominantly upper-class community, housing residents such as Celine Dion, Tiger Woods, and Burt Reynolds—to name a few.
