The first real settlement in Cocoa Beach was started by a family of newly
freed slaves following the Civil War. A hurricane in 1885 discouraged
settlement. In 1888, a group of Cocoa men bought the entire tract of land.
The land remained untouched until an attorney named Gus Edwards arrived. He
bought Cocoa Beach and began to develop it.
The City of Cocoa Beach was established on June 5, 1925. It was incorporated as a City on June 29, 1957. There was a 1,000 percent population increase in the decade between 1950 and 1960.
