Melbourne in Brevard County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The James W. Rossetter House
Two of the interesting features of the interior of the house are the ceilings and walls which are constructed with small pieces of wood into very unique patterns. Tradition has it that this wood was brought down by sailboat from Titusville and the designs were to please the fancy of a shipbuilder carpenter. Early Catholic mass was said in this house before a church was built in south Brevard.
