One of the most interesting characters in Palm Beach County history is “Trapper Nelson”, a legendary woodsman with a scandalous past who owned 858 acres on the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter, Florida.

Originally born as Victor Nostokovich of Trenton, New Jersey, Trapper Nelson served time in Mexico for gun-running, and headed east after his release to settle in Jupiter with a new name.

He built a private paradise along the Loxahatchee River, where he constructed a handmade zoo where tourists would come to view his bobcats, raccoons, possums, alligators, and snakes.

Known as “Tarzan of the Loxahatchee”, he’d wrestle alligators, trap panthers, and amaze guests with his dashing good looks and stories of the wild.

Peanut Island is one of the many treasures of the Palm Beach County outdoors. This small island near the mouth of Palm Beach Inlet is known as a Florida wonderland of boats at the sandbar, snorkeling, camping, and kayaking. Most people assume that Peanut Island got its name because of its size or even shape, but its name is actually rooted in its history.

Peanut Island was created in 1918 with material dredged while digging out Palm Beach Inlet for safe passage. It was actually originally called “Inlet Island”, and became known as Peanut Island years later when a plan was made to use it as a terminal for shipping peanut oil. In 1946, the plan was abandoned, but the name “Peanut Island” stuck for good.
