Old Melbourne Beach Town Hall
The Old Melbourne Beach town hall currently houses the old town hall history center. It was built in 1908 but was actually built in a different location. Originally the building was home to the Melbourne Beach Improvement Company and was located in Ryckman park. The building was moved in 1953 about two miles to where it sits today.
