How did Vero Beach, Florida get its name?

Over the years, local researchers and historians have been trying to solve the mystery of the word "Vero." Many local and state-wide publications have printed incorrect and undocumented facts about its origination. On September 19, 1891, Henry T. Gifford asked the United States Post Office for permission to establish a post office in his own home (Post Office Site Locations, 1891). Ironically, on the application it appears the U.S. Postmaster thought "Vero" was an error, and he wrote over the first letter and put a "Z" to make it "Zero." . Mr. Gifford corrected the postmaster by drawing the letter "V" with very thick lines. - PHILLIP R.
