This week in history: County seat moves from Miami to Juno

On Feb. 19, 1889, the residents of Dade County, which stretched from the upper Keys to the Stuart area, voted to move the county seat from Miami to Juno, in what is now northern Palm Beach County. The Dade county seat moved back to Miami in 1899. A historical marker at Oakbrook Square, just north of PGA Boulevard and U.S. 1 in Palm Beach Gardens, marks the location of the old Dade County courthouse.
