This building was the Eau Gallie Post Office circa 1900-1925. Before the advent of automobiles, old-timers recall tying their horses and buggies to the big oak tree in the back.

The building just south of the Post Office was Eau Gallie's first theater, operated by Harry Sample. Movies, stage plays and minstrel shows were shown here and the Eau Gallie school, located at that time across the street, used the theater for theatrical productions.

The two-story building on the corner of Highland and St. Clair Street was originally built by Clifford Ginter as an apartment house.
