About Daytona Beach Real Estate…
Taken in Part From the City website:
Daytona Beach was founded in 1870 and officially became a city when it was incorporated in 1876. Most sources agree that it received its name from its founder Matthias D. Day, a business tycoon from Mansfield, Ohio. He purchased 3,200 acres in the fall of 1870 for the sum of $1,200. In 1926, the three separate towns of Daytona, Daytona Beach and Seabreeze merged as Daytona Beach.
Although the city is largely known for the speedway and its beach, today it offers a wide variety of famous landmarks and cultural centers. Such landmarks include Jackie Robinson Ballpark, Halifax Harbor Marina, Tarragona Arch, Municipal Stadium, Bethune-Cookman University, Ocean Center, Peabody Auditorium, the Clock Tower and Bandshell, Museum of Arts and Sciences and the Daytona Beach Pier.
