“Explore Historic Titusville” Booklet, Interactive Website & Mobile App
The City of Titusville and the Titusville Historic Preservation Board proudly announce the completion an “Explore Historic Titusville” booklet, interactive website and mobile app. “Explore Historic Titusville” puts the city’s history, people, and memorable places at your fingertips in print and electronic formats. Discover the sites of Titusville’s long history—from its earliest Native American inhabitants, through its rough-and-tumble pioneering era, to its growth as a modern city with close connections to Cape Canaveral and the American Space Program. Self-guided walking and driving tours will direct you to dozens of highlighted spots on the interactive GPS-enabled map, providing stories, historic images, and vivid narration at each location. “Explore Historic Titusville” is brought to you by the Titusville Historic Preservation Board, the Department of State, Division of Historical Resources and the State of Florida.
The Titusville Historic Preservation Board was awarded a $30,000 FY 2021 Small Matching Grant from the Florida Division of Historical Resources to create the booklet, website and mobile app. Since the City of Titusville is a Certified Local Government no monetary match was required from the City. The consultant, Coherit & Associates, was awarded a contract to complete the project. Coherit & Associates researched, interviewed and met with Historic Preservation Board members, the North Brevard Historic Society, the Brevard County Historian, and individuals in the community to create the booklet, website and mobile app with audio recordings and interactive maps.
Copies of the booklet can be obtained at the Community Development Office in Titusville City Hall, 555 S. Washington Avenue. The website can be found at http://history.titusville.com . The mobile app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play by searching “Explore Historic Titusville FL”.
