DeLand Black Heritage Trail Project


The DeLand Black Heritage Trail

The DeLand Black Heritage Trail project, is a self-guided cycling and walking route that extends and connects DeLand’s vibrant downtown social district to historic places that represent African American history.
Our goal is to break through the physical, social, and economic divides using guided and self-guided cycling and walking tours as a catalyst to break down invisible barriers and strengthen community ties. Increasing local history knowledge and raising comfort level for cyclists, walkers and other visitors to the area will strengthen community ties and lead to economic improvements.
