East Coast Advocate Newspaper 6-12-1891 - "Captain Pritchard is having his fine lot at the corner of Washington Avenue and Pine Street cleared and prepared for the reception of his new dwelling, which will be erected at once. We have had the opportunity to inspect the plans of the proposed structure, and the architect has certainly kept in mind the requirements for comfort n Florida climate, and at the same time has preserved all that symmetry, proportion and ornamentation demanded. There will be large, airy rooms, porticos, balconies, halls, closets, fireplaces, in fact, it will be a complete home, and the handsomest residence in town."
When we were there in 2005, the house was in obvious disrepair and we could only view it from the outside. Since then Pritchard House has been restored and is open Tuesdays thru Saturdays -10:00am - 3:00pm, (closed noon to 1:00pm for lunch) and available for guided tours at 10:30am and 1:30 pm by reservations (limited to 12 people)/ Group tours may be arranged by appointment. Rental spaces such as the parlor, dining room, porch and grounds may be reserved for meetings and special occasions
I saw that the North Brevard Museum was in the historic district and was open 10:00am - 3:00pm Tuesday to Saturday and was free (donations requested), so we decided to go there first. They had a lot of wedding dresses and antique post cards, and a lot of pictures of the old town. It was very interesting talking to the old ladies who were volunteers there. We picked up pamphlets on a walking tour in Titusville and for the historic landmarks in Brevard County.
