Jonathan Dickinson State Park
Hobe Sound, Palm Beach County 772.546.2771

Jonathan Dickinson, a Quaker merchant, and his family and crew were shipwrecked near Hobe Sound in 1696 and walked the coast to St. Augustine. Dickinson’s journal describes encounters with Native Americans and Spanish settlers along the coast and provides a detailed historical account of the time period. Portions of the Battle of Loxahatchee, fought during the Second Seminole War, are believed to have been fought within the park. A sign at the park interprets the battle.
