The afternoon storms rolled through today as usual but Shea and Elisa were able to capture this beautiful rainbow picture shortly after. More of our summer weather pattern. Did you know that in 1854 Volusia County was home to just a little over 600 residents? Hard to believe. Volusia County is named after a little town called Volusia that is still there today on the banks of the St. Johns River where 40 crosses. At the time Volusia was the largest town in the county and was a profitable Steamboat landing. Lots of history here as well. You can learn a lot on our site if you visit some of volusia.com’s history pages.
