Brevard County, FL

Founded 14 March, 1844

Influenced by the presence of the John F. Kennedy Space Center, Brevard County is also known as the Space Coast.

The county is named after Theodore Washington Brevard, an early settler, and state comptroller.

 The official county seat has been located in Titusville since 1894.

In the 1800s, the Hernandez-Capron Trail passed through the county.

"Mosquito County" was formed while the state was still a territory, and on some maps was absorbed into an unofficial "Leigh Read" county between 1839 and 1845. This eventually became three new counties one of which was "Saint Lucia County" on March 14, 1844 - it was renamed Brevard County in 1855.
In 1905 St. Lucie County was created from the southern third of the county.
