The barrier island along most of the Treasure Coast has the name Hutchinson attached to it in one form or another. James Hutchinson, a Georgia plantation owner, gave the island its modern name when he obtained a Spanish grant to at least 2,000 acres on the mainland and the island in August 1803.
The modern development of the island came slowly with a few building on the beach opposite Fort Pierce, across from Jensen Beach, and near the House of Refuge in Martin County. Construction of the Fort Pierce Inlet and the Port of Fort Pierce was in 1922. The Indian River Inlet at Pepper Park was also filled in at this time.
The construction of new bridges in Martin County in 1956, and later the extension of A1A along the island from Fort Pierce, opened the way for the construction of condominiums, restaurants, clubs and hotels along the island.
