Titusville History

The region was originally inhabited by the Ais Indians. By 1760 the Indians had vanished, primarily due to slave raids, disease and rum. The Florida region was acquired in 1821 from Spain, however the Seminole Wars prevented the establishment of settlements. Colonel Henry T. Titus arrived in 1867 with a plan to create a town on acreage his wife owned. He constructed a large hotel and donated land for the construction of churches and a courthouse.

The Atlantic Coast, St. Johns & Indian River Railroad came to the city in 1885 which brought tourism and helped Titusville become a prominent agricultural area and shipping location for pineapple and citrus. During the 1950's the Kennedy Space Center was established which created substantial growth in the population, the economy and tourism.
