Magnificent orange groves, stately homes and fine resort hotels, set in a rich coverage of tropical foliage, describe an 1880s look at the oldest resort town on the central Florida eastern coast. By 1887 the town of Rockledge began to boast of its 400 room Indian River Hotel and the three story Plaza Hotel. Long before Henry Flagler's railroad extended southward, passenger service to Rockledge was handled by the Indian River Steamboat Company.
