Episode 20 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: Women of Many Hats: The Rossetter Sisters of Eau Gallie, Florida. RICHES Podcast Documentaries are short form narrative documentaries that explore Central Florida history and are locally produced.

Episode 20 explores the lives of the Rossetter sisters, who were businessowners in Eau Gallie, Melbourne, Florida. The Rossetter family migrated to Eau Gallie in 1902 and had their home built at 1320 Highland Avenue in 1904, which now serves as a historic house operated by the Florida Historical Society. After the death of her father in 1921, Carrie P. Rossetter took responsibility for supporting the family by taking over her father's Standard Oil distribution business. Her sister, Ella F. Rossetter, was also a successful businessowner. After they retired in the 1980s, the Rossetter sisters focused their energy on the preservation of their family home.

Abstract

This podcast explores the lives of two sisters who had remarkable careers as business owners in Eau Gallie, Florida. Today, their legacy lives on in their historic home, built in 1904 and now managed by the Florida Historical Society.
