A Brief History of Vero Beach:
Vero was the name selected by Henry Gifford to establish a post office on his homestead in 1891. It served the six families that lived in the area. By 1913, the Indian River Farms Land Development Company had purchased 50,000 acres of land adjacent to the Gifford homestead and laid out a town site for Vero west of Mr. Gifford’s land. The Town of Vero was incorporated in 1919, but not until 1925 did the name change to Vero Beach. By ballot, Vero Beach became the county seat of the new county of Indian River in the same year. Today’s population is approximately 18,000.
