Eau Gallie was a city in Brevard County, Florida from 1857 to 1969 when citizens voted to merge with neighboring Melbourne, Florida. It is now a small district in the north part of the city, near the Eau Gallie Causeway. William Henry Gleason founded the city. From 1874 to 1878 it served as the county seat of Brevard County, Florida. In French, Eau Gallie means "rocky water," named for the coquina rocks along the shore of the Indian River Lagoon.


Although the area is part of Melbourne, some articles of interest are often associated with the former town.

In 2003, Eau Gallie won a national American Planning Award for its downtown redevelopment. A new sidewalk winds 8,100 feet down Pineapple Avenue; people sit outside in the evening, walk or ride bikes. Streets in the area were paved, and lighting was improved. An art gallery was established. Crime has decreased and dilapidated buildings were torn down.

Historic section

Eau Gallie contains a historic section with several notable museums and houses. These include: the Brevard Art Museum, the Historic Rossetter House Museum, the James Wadsworth Rossetter House on the National Register of Historic Places, the Roesch House and the Winchester Symphony House.
