The Stetson family, which has been here for over 400 years, has a very proud military history. The John B. Stetson Legacy also includes a very important connection to the secret Mason Society. As a matter of fact, JBS is considered one of the top 100 Masons in America! Architectural detail all over the mansion is inspired by the Masonic connection. We will celebrate the 2nd Stetson Legacy Week July 14-21. Rare Stetson family heirlooms will be on display. Free wine and beer tasting at selected establishments in downtown DeLand will be offered just to Stetson Mansion ticket holders this week.
