The town of Jensen Beach began in the late 19th century as a Pineapple farm when John Jensen came from Denmark to set up his plantation. Aided by the railway, the newly formed town of Jensen became known as the "Pineapple Capitol of the World" until a series of natural disasters and a hard freeze had the residents switching from pineapples to other citrus crops. Still, the pineapple is the symbol of Jensen and is still celebrated in annual festivals.
