9. The Wager House

Built: c. 1891
Location: 621 Indian River Avenue, Titusville

The Wager House is one of the oldest buildings in Titusville, and a fine example of the Colonial Revival style. Originally, it was a two-story, flat-roofed structure built by Pleasant J. Hall for Perry Wager. The third floor and hip-roof, with a widow's walk, were added in the early 1900's. The south side porch was a 1915 addition.

Perry Wager's son, Ellis, published Brevard County's first newspaper, the Florida Star, from the first floor of the house. The second floor was used, on occasion, as Titusville's ballroom and opera house.

The Wager House was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1990.
