Melbourne's unique history and location, has molded this part of Florida into one of the best places for beautiful, unspoiled beaches. During the Civil War, Melbourne was used as a training area. The soliders were so attracted to the area, they returned after the war. Many pioneers and former slaves made Melbourne their new home. The town was named after Melbourne, Australia, because the first postmaster spent much time there.
Melbourne is a fast, growing city, and Brevard county is the fastest growing county in the state of Florida.
