The Stetson Mansion in Deland, Florida.
The large 3 storey home is reportedly half the size Mr. Stetson wanted to build on his 300 acre orange grove. Mr. Stetson's beautiful and much younger wife Elizabeth was not a huge fan of the Florida venture so when she came to Deland during the construction phase she convinced John B to scale down construction of the mansion to a mere shadow of Mr Stetson's original plans. The home is now just under 10,000 sq ft and sits on over 2 acres adorned with gardens, gazebos, fountains, patios, and a pool. There have always been rumors of a secret tunnel or wine vault but to date the new owners have not yet found it...the key word is yet.
