Who Are We?


 Green Gables at Historic Riverview Village, Inc., was formed in 2010 in response to the loss of a number of  irreplaceable historic structures in southern Brevard County and the  City of Melbourne. A Florida registered not-for-profit corporation,  recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization.

Our Mission


  To preserve and restore the historical landmark and surrounding green space, known as Green Gables, which represents the legacy of the early developers of South Brevard and to create there a living history museum and center for community engagement.
