Great spot to enjoy learning about Central Florida's history. A lot of terrific items to see donated by some of the area's oldest families. Great activity for a rainy day!

There is so much history about the founding of DeLand once known as Permission Hollow. Mr. DeLand with his friend Mr. Stetson were truly founding fathers here. This house shows so much of this history.
