About Merritt Island
Merritt Island is a midsize community on the eastern Florida coast, part of the Palm Bay metropolitan area. The name Merritt Island refers to both the town and its peninsula, which was formerly an island. The community is primarily residential and concentrated in the central region of the peninsula.
The History of Merritt Island
Merritt Island gained significance in the 19th century when area orange trees survived a freeze that killed most of the state's citrus crop. By 1859, one of the town's largest landowners produced more than 60,000 oranges per year. This helped create a strong agricultural economy that attracted a number of workers to the area, which substantially increased the local population. The Merritt Island area also benefited from the Haulover Canal, a federal government project that made it easier for boats to travel along the east coast.
