Florida hasn’t had or created a new county in almost 100 years, but during the Florida territorial time and early years of statehood, it seemed like it was quite the thing to do. 

Have you ever wanted to know where the name Volusia comes from? Did you know that this county was once known as Mosquito County? These questions and many more will be answered as the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse Lead Docent John Mann engages guests on the fascinating history of our home county that, at one time, was one of the largest counties in the entire country.
