The first Stetson Legacy Week will run July 8 – July 15, 2017. Tours will include a display of Stetson heirloom objects never been offered for public viewing. Tours will also include free wine and beer tasting at two downtown Deland establishments. Abbey and So.NY Market will both offer Stetson Mansion ticket holders generous tastings of craft beer or select wines. The Stetson Mansion is Florida’s first and only “Gilded Age” mansion. It was constructed in 1886 for famed hat maker John B. Stetson who spent 20 winters in Florida. Guided tours of the mansion will detail the very large and amazing legacy Stetson left behind upon his death in DeLand in 1906. Tripadvisor has named the Stetson Mansion on its list of “Top 10 Things To Do in Florida.”
