Description

Volusia County was originally inhabited by the Timucua and Mayaca tribes, which were both decimated by war and disease following contact with Europeans. Under British occupation, Andrew Turnbull established New Smyrna, a failed colony in the southeast portion of present-day Volusia County. The county was formally founded on December 29, 1854, when the Florida State Legislature divided Orange County.
