A Visit By a DeLand to DeLand!

We spent the weekend near DeLand, Florida. The town was named for Henry A. DeLand, a distant relative of mine. It was nice to see the DeLand home, already knowing the story of Henry and his foundation of both DeLand, and Stetson University (originally DeLand University, renamed for a friend of his).

The city sign, showing some typical Florida weather-wear, indicated the name, but nothing of the story.....not unexpected.

The house itself was a two-story home (three if including the attic), not pretentious at all....
