127-year old Lilian Place is the oldest home on Daytona's beachside. It is an excellent example of Italianate High Victorian architecture.

Lilian Place

Lilian Place is the oldest house on Daytona's beachside. This Italianate Victorian house was built in 1884 by one of the city's first settlers Laurence Thompson. Lilian Place sat abandoned and neglected until December of 2009, when the Trust was awarded a Volusia County ECHO Grant to acquire this significant site. After two years of community support, Lilian Place is now open to the public as a fully furnished historic property, but there is still restoration work to be done!

Hotchkiss House

The Hotchkiss House is located next door to Lilian Place. In 1905 Eliphalet Hubbell Hotchkiss had this grand Victorian turreted winter home built overlooking the Halifax River. This property had been sadly neglected, the house and grounds needed an immense amount of repairs. These were achieved through the donation of funds and manpower. It is now the location of our beautiful afternoon teas! Hotchkiss House still requires work and all help is much appreciated!

  • Neat place to visit if you're into historic homes and local history. We greatly enjoyed our tour and the gentleman who gave it had a ton of information and was a fantastic story teller. My only complaint was that the entrance fee was CASH ONLY which wasn't mentioned on the website. It was $10 for my husband and myself and I only had $7 on me. Thankfully my husband did have a $5 bill, but many folks on vacation don't carry cash so stating this on the website would definitely be helpful. Otherwise beautiful home, super interesting and a cheap afternoon.
  • Sherry was an excellent tour guide. Sherry knew her history, very interesting and informative.
