The first settlers, a family of freed slaves, arrived in Cocoa Beach in the late 1860s. An 1885 hurricane discouraged further development for 40 more years. Finally, in 1925, the City of Cocoa Beach was established by Gus Edwards. Initial plans for a manned space flight program brought in thousands of new residents during the 1950s and 60s. Although Cocoa Beach is just south of Kennedy Space Center, it took a television sitcom to acquaint the remainder of America with the Space Coast. I Dream of Jeannie ran from 1965 to 1970, with its first episodes filmed in black and white.
