Established in 1946, the Ormond Memorial Art Museum & Gardens shows its residents and visitors a little slice of beauty. Enjoy a day in the sunshine as you stroll through the gardens and memorials, and then take a respite in the air conditioning as you walk through the art exhibits inside the museum. The museum honors the veterans of World War I and World War II. The painting collection in its museum was given in 1946 by the artist Malcolm Fraser, and has been professionally restored since. It is open days during the week and on the weekend.
Ormond Beach Historic
Founded in 1976, the Ormond Beach Historical Society works tirelessly to keep the history of Ormond Beach intact for future generations. One of its earliest endeavors was to preserve the winter home of John D. Rockefeller, known as The Casements. It serves as a cultural center for the city. The organization has used its resources for many other historical projects since, and has been a force for protecting the legacy of the city. If you have a love for history and are interested in joining this organization, you can purchase either a family or individual membership.
