The Historic Pritchard House is an example of Queen Anne architecture; it was built for Capitan James Pritchard in 1891. The variety of materials used on the exterior and elaborate use of shapes and textures produced a highly picturesque effect. Pritchard family descendants lived in the house until it was purchased by Brevard county in 2005.
The North Brevard Heritage Foundation assisted the county in restoring the house and oversees its operation as a house museum. Gardens recognizing several of Titusville’s founding families have been designed to accentuate the beauty of the house and provide charming spaces for gatherings and celebrations.
The City of Titusville is proud to be recognized as Florida’s second Trail Town. The Florida Greenways and Trails Council voted unanimously on June 27, 2018, to recognize the City as a Trail Town in recognition of the Titusville community’s commitment to providing a safe, comfortable, and fun place to walk, bike, and more.
We are proud to host three multi-use trails running through our city: the Coast-to-Coast trail, St. John's River-to-Sea Loop, and East Coast Greenway. The Coast-to-Coast trail is a 250-mile trail that links Titusville with St. Petersburg. The St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop is a 260-mile long trail that merges with the East Coast Greenway, which is one-third complete along its 2,900-mile route from Maine to Florida.
The Canaveral National Seashore including Playalinda Beach is home to more than 1,000 plant species and 310 bird species. The 24-mile-long beach is the longest undeveloped beach on the east coast of Florida. Playalinda was voted the 4th best beach in Florida 2015.
This beach lends itself to a premiere rocket launch location, but always check their website for the most up-to-date info regarding launches. There is a vehicle entrance fee, as well as an Apollo District Visitor Center that is inside Canaveral National Seashore. Learn More
