Long Description:
"The DeLand House Museum was built in 1886 for DeLand's first attorney, Arthur George Hamlin, who also developed the Hamlin Orange. Originally a one-and-a-half story structure, the house was built upon land purchased from Henry A. DeLand, the founding father of the City. At the time, the site extended all the way to Woodland Boulevard and had an orange grove from the house to the street.

Arthur George Hamlin was born in 1855 and arrived in DeLand in 1883 as the town’s first attorney. He was the attorney for Henry DeLand, founder of the city, for John B. Stetson and his business enterprises and for the DeLand Town Council. He was also legal advisor to Henry Flagler and Joseph Parrot of the Florida East Coast Railway. In addition to his legal practice, he grew oranges and became an authority on citrus culture. He developed the Hamlin Orange, which remains one of Florida’s most popular. He died in 1932. His Great Floridian plaque may be found at the Henry DeLand House Museum, 137 Michigan Avenue, DeLand."
