Our Rich History
In 1924 the Eastwood Terrace Hotel was built. The original parcel of land was purchased by Henry A. Deland. According to those who were here then…all of the surrounding area was a fine golf course…and the trolley stopped just down the road. The northern travelers would walk a block to the then very exclusive Eastwood Terrace Hotel. On the first floor was an elegant ballroom and restaurant with chandeliers. History has it that the short termers slept on the second floor and the long termers slept on the third floor.
The Eastwood Terrace Hotel…as it was known then…was the location of the Navy Dances as well as the Deland High School Proms.The upstairs hall is a “Galleria” of times past ….and has portraits of wedding receptions, a bride tossing her garter and being riced out front. The ambiance and enchantment of yesteryear continues to this day. In the recent past, a presidential hopeful held a reception with area delegates in the famous parlor room. Most recently, the producers and cast of a Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie enjoyed the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere of the Eastwood Inn while filming on location. Come enjoy the tradition of the Eastwood and be a part of our rich and wonderful present.
