The idea for Honor America came from a call to Americans by Bob Hope, the Reverend Billy Graham, J. Willard Marriott and Hobart Lewis to gather at the Reflecting Pool on the Washington Mall on July 4, 1970 and remember the traditions and principles upon which the founding fathers established the great nation.
A few Melbourne businessmen liked the idea of having a local site to remind our community of America’s great heritage and history, provide a place for families to remember loved ones, and commemorate our veterans. Honor America, Inc. was chartered on October 18, 1974, and located at the Henegar Center. In October 1985, Honor America moved to its current location at 1601 Hickory Street in what was the old water storage tank for the City of Melbourne. Today, the old water tank still houses the Rotunda of American History portion of the museum.
