However, this suggestion has not been met with wide acceptance from historians who state that de Leon's landing place cannot be known within a leeway of less than a hundred miles or so.Melbourne Beach is Brevard County's oldest beach community.In 1879, a hotel, the Oak Lodge, was built for researchers and naturalists on a 164acre location near Aquarina.The town was established in 1883 by a retired Union general.
