What a wonderful find by chance. Spent 2 nights for a family funeral nearby and wanted to spend some spare time close by. We stumbled on this historic place. We had a fantastic tour, just the two of us (we arrived at 10 when it first opened). Our guide was great! Saw an unique visual presentation on the river life... 更多
We liked how this was not a rushed tour and we learn so much about the St John's River. It was very informative on early River life, but the house has been through a lot, we are are pleased it was saved and now being toured. It's a 'Moose Do' (as they say in the Adirondacks) when in the area.... 更多

Old pictures on the walls show orange groves and country side, now developed with houses. The house architecture is incrediable. I love the old quality wood work.... 更多
On the spur of the moment, I took my 15 year old son to visit DeBary Hall. The docent turned out to be the Manager and she was patient with my special needs son. We both explained how things works that he had never seen before, what it was like to have a bed pan, why there were transoms over... 更多
My school took our Kindergarten classes to the DeBary Hall for a field trip. Although the hall is very nice to see, the content of the field trip was not appropriate for Kindergarten students. The other teachers and the chaperones enjoyed learning about Debary's history but the students were bored.
