I recommend reading the following book, for history of the Lagoon and the surrounding area.
< Eriksen, John M. Brevard County: a History to 1955. Florida Historical Society Press, 1994. >
It’s less than $3.00 on Kindle.
Also, take a look at the Blog by John Erikson.
This is from the Brevard County Government Webpage. I haven’t ordered these yet (Accessed 15 Feb 2020)
“Between 1996 and 2001, the Brevard County Historical Commission sponsored and published a three volume history of our county, widely considered the most thorough history of any Florida county.”
Finally, here’s also a REALLY OLD (1885) book by Canova that is interesting, sad, true. It’s basically a journal of an Army Soldier who patrolled central Florida. I’ve just started reading it. It’s also less than $3.00 on Kindle.
