African-American Pioneers of Titusville

African-American Pioneers of Titusville: Beginning around the 1880's, African-American settlers made their way to Titusville, FL.  They made significant strides in establishing their homes, local community, churches and businesses. Andrew J. Gibson is noted as the first African-American resident of Titusville, FL. Many others would soon follow to raise families, provide services to the community, and to seek a better life for their children through education. Please take this opportunity to visit the memorials of some of the first African-American Pioneers of the Greater Titusville Community...
