  • The population of Titusville was 2,604 (Whispering Hills & Indian River City had not been annexed.)
  • Dummitt Cove was spelled with one "t."
  • SR 401 in lower right corner of map (between plots 25 & 30) was access into the U. S. Air Force
  • Eastern Missile Test Center.
  • The name of Mosquito Lagoon had been changed to Indian River Lagoon in an attempt to improve the "visibility" to tourists. This plus a later attempt to change the name of Cape Canaveral to Cape Kennedy was squashed because U.S. Govt. maps & charts would not be changed.
  • SR 406 from the intersection of SR 402 to US 3 was affectionately called "pot hole road," it was not repaved until the early 90's.

These maps are compliments of Bob Paty.
