Porcher House is another popular destination. It’s a historic house that was built in 1916 and it’s listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. Take a tour of the 10-bedroom home. It is the perfect example of classical 20th-century architecture and has nice surrounding gardens.
The nearby Brevard Museum of History and Natural Science houses over 3,000 fossils, including those of the Windover People and you can learn about how these ancient relics were discovered in an archaeological dig recreation.
The museum’s information plaques accurately depict the culture and traditions of Florida’s first inhabitants as well as the state’s diverse ecosystem, alongside about space exploration. As for the kids, they can proceed to the Imagination Center and re-enact a NASA shuttle launch. It’s a fun day out for all!
