Florida’s Historic Mega Mansions
January 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Ormond Beach Historical Society is hosting this Florida Humanities grant-funded program. Learn how Florida is home to some of the most amazing historic mansions in the United States. Many of these homes were built by the mega-industrialists who found Florida as their winter playground. All of the homes are open to the public for tours as museums and it is a great way to discover Florida’s history, heritage, and architecture. Learn about the architectural wonders of Vizcaya, Stetson Mansion, the Charles Deering Estate, the John and Mable Ringling Estate and more.
