ChronoPoints | Missileland, USA
ChronoPoints is an initiative at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training dedicated to digitally documenting historically significant mid-century structures and artifacts. Our mission is to record a “life history” through the capture of digital data and by contextualizing it through contemporaneous photographs, documents, and oral histories of individuals associated with the artifact or building.

Missileland, USA

Today, I was in Cocoa Beach researching several locations that ChronoPoints plans to laser scan this summer.   I thought I would share this wonderful City of Cocoa Beach emblem from the 1960s when the community was known as Missileland, USA due to the influence of nearby Cape Canaveral (Kennedy).   The logo depicts the outline of a Minuteman Missile rising from the Cape.
