Deland florida

the town of deland florida was founded in 1876 near the st. johns river. the town was named after henry a. deland who founded the deland academy. the academy's name was changed to stetson university in 1889.
deland is the county seat of volusia county florida. an interesting historical tidbit, deland was the first town in florida to be wired for electricity. this very nice southern town has several attractions that are of interest to tourists. nearby are blue springs state park and de leon springs state park. also de land has a nice historic district downtown and the beautiful campus of stetson university is worth visiting.
