Parsimmons to Hollywood
The area was originally known as Persimmon Hollow for the wild persimmons that grew around the areas natural springs. After visiting the area from New York in 1876, Henry Deland set sights on building a citrus and tourism center, bought the land, and named the town after himself. Deland invested in the town and built both a public school and Florida's first private college (Deland Academy). Incorporated in 1882, Deland would become the first Florida city to have electricity.
The big Florida freeze of 1885 destroyed the orange crops in the area making investor's Florida-investments nearly worthless prompting Deland to go back to New York. Upon leaving, Deland put his friend John Stetson (the notable hat-maker) in charge of his private college and it was ultimately renamed John B. Stetson University. Today, Stetson University is Florida's oldest private college.
Deland is commonly referred to as the "skydiving capital of the world" as so many in the skydiving industry have made it home; no doubt in part due to the local Deland Municipal Airport. The small town has also attracted Hollywood as it has been the filming location for several films, documentaries, and an HBO miniseries.
