Eau Gallie began as a small coastal town along the Indian River Lagoon in 1860 and quickly became a busy thoroughfare as steamers, riverboats and freighters transported residents, cargo and tourists. Now merged into the City of Melbourne, Eau Gallie retains a quaint, historical district that strives to retain its cultural heritage and distinct early Floridian flavor. Many historic buildings remain in and around the downtown area, some dating back to the early 1900s. The scenic river offers beautiful views of the natural landscape and is a great place to spot wildlife.
