Award Winning MainStreet
Downtown DeLand is an award winning Florida Main Street community where we have learned to cherish our past while planning for and moving into the 21st Century. DeLand has many dedicated businesses and individuals working daily to maintain a lively and economically successful downtown.
DeLand was the first community to receive the Main Street designation in Florida and was recognized as a “Great American Main Street Award” winner in 1997 by the National Trust for Historic Preservation Main Street Center. In 2017 MainStreet DeLand won the “America’s Main Streets” contest presented by IndependentWeStand.org.
Spend a little time with us and you will find we are an authentic, thriving, great American downtown. Whether you are here for business or planning to visit our downtown, we hope you will find what you’re looking for on our website.
Rufus Pinkney Mural Fund
Every once in a while someone quietly affects an entire community. Rufus Pinkney did just that. Rufus operated a shoe shine business in Parking Lot #4 for nearly 40 years. Following his death, the community requested we have a mural honoring his life where his shop stood all those years.
We are currently accepting donations for the Rufus Mural scheduled to be completed this month. If you would like to be a part of history, here is how you can help. Donations can be made to: MainStreet DeLand Association, memo "Rufus" at 100 N. Woodland BL, Ste.4, DeLand 32720. Or click the "Donate" button below.
