A Taste of Cocoa, Florida

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT COCOA?

  1. Cocoa is a city in Brevard County, Florida, United States. The population was 17,140 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Palm Bay–Melbourne–Titusville Metropolitan Statistical Area.

  2. Cocoa was founded by fishermen with the first families arriving around 1860. A post office was established at Magnolia Point, and the city's first commercial building was erected around 1881. First plats of the new settlement were made in 1882 under the name "Indian River City" on land owned by Captain R. A. Hardee. The name Indian River City was unacceptable to the U.S. Postal authorities who claimed it was too long for use on a postmark.

  3. The population rose dramatically following the development of the space industry, quadrupling from 3,098 in 1940 to 12,244 in 1960. Cocoa and the surrounding area also became integrated with the tourist industry for the first time as thousands visited the area to witness the launches from Cape Canaveral. By 1980, the population had grown to 16,096.

  4. Education was segregated until the 1960s, at which time Monroe High School and elementary schools for black students were closed.

  5. Downtown, now called "Cocoa Village", has been revived with a series of government grants and private investment. The Diamond Square Redevelopment Agency has been established with the goal of improving residential and commercial values in the city's minority areas.
