North Brevard History - Titusville, Florida
The 1895 Titusville Flowing Salt Well
From Judy Davis, North Brevare Historical Society
The scene along what was to become Washington Avenue looked like this in Titusville prior to the big fire of 1895. The buildings might well have come out of a Western movie, with the frame structures having a covered wooden walkway along the front. In the foreground, in the middle of what today is U. S. 1, is a flowing salt well.
The second building was apparently that of the firm of Oliver and Budge, dealing in hardware, sash doors and blinds and Georgia pine lumber. The last building in the row has a sign on the side reading J. W. Rogers, Clothiers, Furnishers, and Gent's Wear.
