Volusia County Charters of Freedom Monument

  • Address: 249 North Beach Street, Daytona Beach, FL 32114
The Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Civil Rights Amendments can be viewed adjacent to the Riverfront Esplanade near the Veterans Memorial thanks to the combined efforts of the City of Daytona Beach, the Esplanade Foundation, local residents Gary Bergenske and Harry Jennings, and area Shriners, working with Foundation Forward, Inc. of Burke County, NC. These founding documents, known as The Charters of Freedom, are being permanently installed at the Riverfront Esplanade, adjacent to the Veterans Memorial. Foundation Forward’s mission is to install Charters of Freedom settings in easily accessible locations so communities can view these founding documents in a proper setting without having to incur the costs of traveling to Washington, D.C. These settings will provide a hands-on education in American History and Civics.
