HISTORIC
MELROSE
Est.
1877


l.1














i9th Century Steamboat


In 1877, the community of Melrose was
located along the historic Bellamy Road
(Florida's first federal highway) and platted on
abandoned cotton fields. At the same time, work
started on a canal to connect two lakes and make
the railroad at Waldo reachable by water. In
1881, with the, completion of that canal, steam-
boats began puffing their way twice daily
between Melrose Bay and Waldo, shipping out
local farm produce and bringing back visitors.
Northern tourists began to find their way to
Melrose. Soon fine homes ringed the bay. There
were schools, churches, a hotel, stores, a news-
paper, a grist mill, dances, barbecues, horse
races. All of it seemed idyllic.
Then the winter of 1894-1895 brought disas-
trous freezes. Snow
fell and the temper- ?
ature dropped to
zero.' The hotel
closed. Merchants
went 6ut of busi-
ness. Melrose, sud-
denly, almost a
ghost town, barely
survived. WNf


Trinity Episcopal Church














M&S Bank-Tolles House


T hat was a tragedy that turned into a benefit.
Over the years, while the rest of Florida boomed,
Melrose remained largely the same. Little
changed. Nobody tore down those old homes
and put up condos. Nobody chewed up those
lovely, forested landscapes for development.
The visual history of the community not only
remains but is a functioning part of everyday life.
Seventy-nine sites are listed on the National
Register of Historic Places. Late 19th century
homes-all of them with porches, and most of
them gabled, two-story frame buildings with
brick chimneys-overlook Melrose Bay.
You can stroll or drive through the commu-
nity and see it for yourself. If you wish to start
your tour with #1, the Jackson House, it is locat-
ed on State Route 26 just across the street from
the M&S Bank. Enjoy HistoricMelrose.
