DeLand Memorial Hospital and Veterans Museum
230 N. Stone Street, DeLand, FL 32720 - United States
DeLand Memorial Hospital was built in 1922 and dedicated to those we lost during WWI. The DeLand Hospital and Veterans Museum brings you back in time to a fully furnished operating room complete with vintage medical equipment and artifacts as well as a Doctor’s office, an apothecary and an ice & electrical exhibit. The building also features three rooms dedicated to the veterans of West Volusia.
Behind the main building is the Burgess Building, originally the site of a hospital for colored patients. It is being redecorated now but it will be open for preview on Smithsonian Day.
Outside the building, in Bill Dreggor’s Park there are memorials to several wars, a butterfly garden and there is a playground nearby.
All rooms, displays and exhibits will be open to the public.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
