Charles John Frazier Campbell (1862 – 1947) was the first mayor of Melbourne, Florida serving from 1888 to 1889.

He immigrated to America from Canada[2] in 1884.[1] He married Margaret Punnett in 1893.[1] They had children John and Mona.[1]

In 1916, Campbell bought the Gem Theatre from J.B. Johnston.

Campbell bought the Goode House hotel, and enlarged it to be the Bellevue Hotel. It had a cement pool and a water wheel and pulley carried the guests' luggage to the third floor. In 1920 it was renamed as the Orange Spot Inn, owned by Harry Balsley of Detroit.
