James Pritchard was born in New York City in 1839. He served in the Confederacy and met his wife Mary Haley Boye in December 1866. After inheriting land from Mary’s grandfather, the couple moved to an area near what “became Indian River City but was then known as Pritchard’s Landing”. After initially growing sugarcane and citrus, Captain Pritchard became involved in the real estate business. In 1888, Pritchard organized the Indian River State bank and served as its president. In 1891, contractor Pleasant J. Hall began building the Pritchard’s new home located on Washington Avenue. Captain Pritchard, his wife Mary, his mother-in-law Frances Delespine Boye, and his children Boud and Kate were the original occupants. Captain Pritchard died in 1926 and is buried at Oaklawn Cemetery in Titusville, Florida. Boud and his wife, Lola Pauline Smith, known as “Miss Lovie” lived in the house until their deaths. Boud and Miss Lovie’s daughter Mary lived in house until 2005, when the house was purchased by Brevard County Board of County Commissioners.

Pritchard house is a good place to teach kids about history, especially Florida history. It's also a good place for a date, just to walk around hold hands. All in all, a very nice place.
Historical home in downtown Titusville. Volunteers give wonderful tours by appointment. Call and schedule if you are in the area. Well worth your time to see this 4 bedroom Queen Anne style restored home. We had a very complete and nicely narrated tour that lasted over 1.5 hours by two docents in period dress. Highly recommend.
