CELEBRATING 50 YEARS Happy Anniversary to all South Brevard Historical Society members, current and past, as it was on April 28, 1966 that the Society was formed in a meeting at the Palm Bay Civic Center. Since then SBHS has brought together people interested in the history of Florida and Brevard County. While SBHS works at the local level, the people employed at the Florida's Division of Historical Resources work hard to be faithful to their mission statement: "To inspire a love of history through preservation and education."
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.
Presented by Sir Robert Marx, Underwarter Archaeologist and Author
In September 1962, a crew of nine men boarded a replica of Columbus' ship the Nina and set sail from Spain traveling to San Salvador. Serving as the ship's navigator and the only American on board, Robert Marx documented the 77 day crossing. Join us as he details the reenactment of Christopher Columbus' first voyage to the Americas.

The Green Gables at Historic Riverview Village, Inc. organization is busy working on events and opportunities to preserve this local treasure.
Update: Both the Greeting Room and the Living Room mantles have been returned to Green Gables. Family member Charles McClung brought them all the way from Georgia where they have been loving stored in case efforts to save the home failed. The Green Gables organization appreciates and thanks the family's support. Volunteers will be carefully installing the mantels as quickly as possible. We also thank Slug A Bug for their in-kind fumigation and tenting of Green Gables. We are happy to report the house is now free of termites and other critters!!
