North Brevard History - Titusville, Florida
ELLERBE W. CARTER FAMILY HISTORY
The North Brevard Heritage Foundation, Inc. was instrumental in saving the structure from code violations and possibly being demolished. They worked with the family and City of Titusville to get the violations settled, and after transferring by quit claim deeds, we were able to help the North Brevard Charities and Sharing Center acquire the property. It will be restored for adaptive reuse for the community.
