The South Brevard Historical Society was founded in 1966 to bring together citizens interested in the history of Florida and especially South Brevard County. The Society’s purpose is to provide the community with the means to draw strength and perspective from the past, realize a sense of regional identity, and find direction for the future, thus enhancing the quality of life and vitalizing the communities of South Brevard.
The Society has met continuously and continues to provide programs and activities to educate members and the general public. We hold monthly general meetings the 2nd Saturday of the month from September through June. Members and guests have an opportunity to share ideas and information. The public is always invited to attend. The Society publishes ten newsletters a year to inform members of upcoming programs and news of the Society as well as information about new history publications, other history organizations and news of general historic interest. These newsletters will be published online at this website as well.
