Melbourne was settled after the Civil War by freed slaves in 1867. The first known inhabitants were Peter Wright, Balaam Allen and the Wright Brothers. By 1885, the town had 70 occupants and was home to many businesses. The name was chosen in 1880, when the post office was built. It was named in honor of one of the residents, C. J. Hector, who moved there from Melbourne, Australia and became the first postmaster of Melbourne. Fishing was the major industry at that time. Melbourne was the site of a naval air station during World War II, used to train fighter pilots. Due to the space exploration of the 50s and 60s, industry supporting the space program began to take over the industry in Melbourne. In 1969, Melbourne merged with nearby Eau Gallie.
