Melbourne Beach is considered the oldest community in Brevard County. The once home to the Ais Native Americans had settlers coming to this area in the late 1800’s. It was 1879 when the Oak Lodge, a hotel, was built here so researchers would be able to stay while working. Pineapples used to be grown here too early in the 20th century until a freeze wiped out the crops which ended the desire for commercial farming. In 1921, Melbourne Beach was given easier access to the mainland when the Melbourne Causeway was constructed through Indialantic. Just two years later, Melbourne Beach was officially incorporated. There are many historical sites throughout the town including:
● The Shannon House
● The Fisherman’s Cottage
● The Help House
● The Red Bird House
● Old Town Hall
