BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As part of the events marking Florida’s 500th Anniversary, the Viva 500 Committee has provided each county library system with a time capsule to fill and preserve for future generations.

The time capsule, a stainless steel cylinder, will be placed on display at the Government Center in Viera, where it will remain until the year 2063.

INCLUDE YOUR OWN IDEAS FOR FLORIDIAN HISTORY PRESERVATION

A committee has been formed to solicit ideas and materials to include that will be representative of what Brevard County’s residents feel is important in past and present day lives.

Brevard County, which was named in 1855, has a rich and varied history and has captured the world’s attention numerous times with events like the archaeological discovery at Windover in Titusville and the Space Program that put the first man on the Moon.

Copies of several items from the Brevard Historical Commission archives, headquartered at the Central Brevard Library, have been identified for inclusion and the committee would like to receive additional input from the community.

To submit suggestions, contact at mboonstra@brev.org or join the discussion at the Brevard County Public Libraries Facebook page.
