Introduction

 

     Volusia County is located in the state of Florida.  Although Daytona Beach is Volusia County's best-known city, its county seat is DeLand, and its most populous city is currently Deltona.

     Volusia County was established in 1854. It was named for the port of Volusia along the St. John's River on the county's western side. The origins of the word "Volusia" are unclear, though there are several theories.

Volusia County is bordered on the west by the St. Johns River, and by the Atlantic Ocean to the east.  Roughly the size of Rhode Island, Volusia is situated 50 miles northeast of Orlando, 60 miles north of the Kennedy Space Center, and 89 miles south of Jacksonville.

     Counties that lie adjacent to Volusia are: Flagler County, Florida – north; Brevard County, Florida – south; Orange County, Florida – south; Seminole County, Florida – southwest; Lake County, Florida – west; Marion County, Florida – northwest; and Putnam County, Florida – northwest.
