The City of Titusville FL

The city of Titusville, Florida, is the home of around 50,000 residents. The town was originally called Sand Point, but the name was changed in 1873 when Henry T. Titus played a game of dominoes with Captain Clark Rice to determine who the town would be named after Titus won, and the name was subsequently changed to Titusville. The town was incorporated a few years later in 1887.

In the early days as a city, Titusville was well known for its churches. Henry Titus himself helped found four churches by donating land specifically for that purpose. St. Gabriel's Episcopal church still stands as a testament to the city's early beginnings.

One of the city's claims to fame is the proximity of the Kennedy Space Center from which the Apollo shuttles were launched. The Space Center is located just across the Indian River from the city on Merritt Island. The introduction of this program greatly aided the city's population and economy as more tourists began to visit the area. Even today, there are many places throughout the city where residents and visitors can go to view rocket launches.

Many natural attractions exist in Titusville as well. The surrounding areas are a positive haven for birds. As a result, birding is a popular pastime for residents of the city. Titusville hosts the annual Birding Festival every January. Sandy beaches are also a relaxing location for residents to visit on the weekend. Canaveral National Seashore offers a particularly serene experience with the chance to catch a glimpse of sea turtles and other wildlife.

Titusville, with its history, beaches, wildlife, and occasional rocket launches, is a treasure of Florida. It is certainly a great place to visit, but an even better place to live.
