In the 1930s, a man by the name of Joe Wickham explored the area and later became county commissioner. He imagined a new road running north between the Indian River and Lake Washington to consolidate the district and tie the county together. This became Wickham Road and gave Suntree and Viera a major thoroughfare. For decades Wickham Road was nothing more than a dirt trail. The Duda family owned a great deal of farmlands in the area. The new road gave the Duda’s the opportunity to develop their farmland. The result was the Viera Company.
