Description

A postcard depicting the Crossway Inn, located at 3901 North Atlantic Avenue in Cocoa Beach, Florida. The inn had 100 rooms, a cocktail lounge, a restaurant, a swimming pool, and a private beach. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) constructed Florida State Road 140 (present-day Florida State Road A1A) in 1935, allowing for increased development of Cocoa Beach. In 1944, a Florida Legislature bill that would have dissolved the city government was defeated. The town was incorporated as a city on June 29, 1957. With the construction of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC), the city of Cocoa Beach experienced a major growth in population and economic development. However, the city experienced layoffs and economic decline during the period between the conclusion of the Apollo Program and the introduction of the Space Shuttle Program. The Crossway Inn was located just off of A1A,
