Það sem verður gert

My tour is a walk through the sites of Cocoa’s history from its founding on the Florida frontier in the 1880s until the beginning of the Space Age in 1950. The route of the tour, six-tenths of a mile, follows the growth of the town. The tour begins at the site of Cocoa’s first four buildings. The tour uses the buildings and town layout as a stage for the narration. A guide book of historical photographs adds to the visual experience to give tour guests a view of the village during its first 65 years. Historically, Cocoa was an important gateway to South Florida’s southern frontier; a working-class community whose residents built a nationally prominent winter resort district a mile south in Rockledge; a location for commercial, professional and banking services; and a 1920s land boom community with the region’s first bridges to the barrier islands. During the Great Depression, citrus marketing and shipping made Cocoa Brevard County’s most populous city and the second most active citrus shipping point in Florida. In the 1970s, the city established the Historic Cocoa Village redevelopment district to help preserve its architectural heritage. Now a significant part of the historic village is an appealing and active commercial and recreational area for the whole community. It has a unique architectural setting and an authentic vintage ambiance.

Frekari upplýsingar um Roy

Roy

I have authored two books on Cocoa's history and architectural heritage, and two other books on the same about Rockledge, Florida. These two cities had a common origin in the 1870s. My books have a wide following locally that has resulted in many public speaking opportunities. Along with those talks, people encouraged me to offer regularly scheduled tours. Airbnb's "Experience" listings make a tour seem feasible. I am available for speaking to groups but if you'd like an authoritative "eyes-on the-scene" experience in Cocoa Village, this tour is for you.

Staðsetning

The tour begins near the spot where Cocoa began in 1883 when Ben Willard built his store. By 1895, Cocoa had a bank, several stores, a hotel, and an active business district. Several buildings of that era will be highlighted on the tour. Buildings from the 1920s Land Boom dominate Cocoa Village's architectural heritage. All will be shown and explained in the context of the Village's and area's history and development.
