A Brief History Of DeLand FL

DeLand was originally named Persimmon Hollow and was settled in 1874. Henry Addison DeLand of New York  bought the land surrounding the town in 1876 and named the area after himself.

Official incorporation came in 1882. 1883 brought the establishment of DeLand Academy, which lays claim to being the first private college in Florida. 

By the 1920s a land boom prompted construction of Mediterranean style structures, many of which have since been restored. In the present day, DeLand FL is a popular place to live, work, and visit.
