The Spell Building

Built in 1912 for Dr. J. C. Spell, the first licensed pharmacist to operate in Titusville, this two-story masonry vernacular building was originally the location of the Banner Drug Store. Other rooms and second floor offices were leased to various other businesses, including Brevard Realty; dentist, E.P. Lichtenberger, physician, R.F. McCleod; and the office of one of Titusville's most prominent businessmen, Jesse J. Parrish, who owned the Nevins Fruit Company.
