Learn about the history of DeLeon Springs State Park during a free presentation.

He’ll share tales about a famous visitor, three wars, a plantation, the Western Hemisphere’s oldest canoes, and interesting local stories. He will also offer his thoughts on whether Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon visited the area during his supposed search for the Fountain of Youth in the 16th century.
