RAIN DATE

The Florida Heritage Marker Dedication has been rescheduled for June 15th, 2016 at 10:00 A.M. at the Vero Beach City Hall, 1053 10th Place, Vero Beach.
 
This Marker will commemorate the architectural style of the current building which houses the governmental offices of the City of Vero Beach. In the early 1960's, the architects and builders designed and built a very modern building that is today called "Mid-Century Modern". The history of the very first City Hall and the location of this second City Hall building are both worthy of noting on this marker.
 
Anna Brady, Chairman of the Vero Beach Historical Commission will describe WHAT IS MID-CENTURY MODERN. She will also explain an exciting and nationwide initiative from the National Trust for Historical Preservation called ‪#‎THIS‬ PLACE MATTERS.
