A Place to Party

Take a trip back in time while visiting DeLand by making a stop at The Stetson Mansion. Built in 1886, the home features five kitchen areas, 13 bathrooms, and more bedrooms than you can count. Built by John B. Stetson, the home was once a place for elegant parties and gatherings. The mansion eventually opened its doors to the public after 100 years closed and history has since been relived. Book a room on this estate for private functions, tours, and lectures. To host an event that will create lasting memories, look into renting this beautiful home for the day.

When you have the itch to be the star, you can also audition for a part in your favorite play. A youth program is also available to get kids involved in the theater process. Located downtown, The Athens Theater was first opened in the 1920s and has been restored throughout the years to bring it up to date.
