In Vero Beach during the first decade of the 1900's there was a tradition of naming buildings after Native Americans. The Pocahontas Arcade, built in 1923 by Blackford and Davis originally contained nine offices and a wrap around loggia. In 1926 a second story addition of 23 apartments was constructed. On the parapet, artist A.A. Thomas sculpted the life-size image of the Indian girl, Pocahontas.
The Pocahontas Building was renovated in 2002 and 2003 by the Haggerty Family.
