Hello!

If you are moving to the area and you would like to know how it was like way back in the day then click this link to a Facebook Group called History and Memories of Brevard County. It is an open group and you do not need to join to look at the pictures, and stories. If you wish to comment then you will need to join the group.

If you moved away from a city in Brevard then you can look back and reminisce. Remember places and things that used to be.

Enjoy, and take care!

In the tool bar is a FILES button. You can click this and see a Table of Contents of various cities or something of interest such as Drive In Theaters, Bowling Alleys, and the Eau Gallie Race Track, or you may enjoy seeing all of the old roadside fruit stands when Highway US1 was the travel route to Miami before I-95 came to be. Perhaps you would like to see Restaurants that were the place to be in years past or Night Club and Bars,

I can attest that is a very interesting page. Been here since since 1970 and lots of changes here in that time.

When we moved here in 1970, there was just a few little flat top bungalows and business on A1A on the beach side. Now, it almost looks like Ft Lauderdale.
