Come to the WVHS Conrad Center 137 W Michigan Avenue
12 noon - 5 pm.
Park in a designated lot either on Michigan Ave or on Florida Ave.
In Conrad you will receive a tour booklet with map and wrist band which will give you access to the homes on the tour.
Tours begin at the WVHS Conrad Center, 137 W. Michigan Ave., DeLand. Pick up your program booklet and wrist band on the day you begin your tour, either on foot or board one of the vans that circle the route all afternoon. Ample parking is available in the grass lot on West Michigan Avenue east of the DeLand House Museum, and on Florida Avenue in the paved lot behind Stetson University's Davis Hall. We encourage you to use the free transportation provided because parking is limited on some streets. Many of these historic buildings are unfortunately not handicap accessible.
Walk around each neighborhood at your own pace, and catch a van between them, or to return to Conrad.
