New Historical Marker for the Porcher House

Was great working with our friends at the City of Cocoa to get a well deserved State Historical Marker for the Porcher house in Cocoa Village. The well-known landmark turned 100 last year and as the result of several state preservations grants, and much additional city funding, it is poised to stand for another 100!! Special thanks to the Tourist Development Council for funding the marker!!
