Donate to DeLand House
The West Volusia Historical Society is working with the City of DeLand to accomplish an extensive renovation of DeLand House Museum, which has been preserving stories of DeLand and West Volusia pioneers since its opening in 1990. The City is at work now on much-needed exterior repairs on the 1886 home, and the Society's volunteers are working to refresh its worn interior, bringing it up to the time when its longest residents, the young professional Farriss family, lived there in the early 20th Century.
About 70% of the $335,000 needed for the total project has been provided, from the City of DeLand and from WVHS volunteers' fundraising.
We need your help to reach the goal. Every donation makes a difference!
DeLand House is more than a museum. It embodies the essential spirit of DeLand and West Volusia, firmly based in our shared heritage, sense of community and our legacy of resilience and progress.
We are eager to welcome the public back to this historic treasure, which protects and shares the stories that have made DeLand what it is today.
