The History of Daytona Beach
It all began in 1871 when Mathias Day, Jr. from Mansfield, Ohio, purchased a 2.144-acre tract of the former William’s Plantation on the west bank of a channel known as the Halifax River, and built a hotel in the center of what is today referred to as the “Daytona Beach Historic District”. Unfortunately, He lost the title to his land in 1872, due to financial difficulties. In 1876, the few residents of the small town agreed, the city would be named in honor of its founder,(Day), and Daytona Beach was born. It was incorporated in 1876.
In 1886, St. Johns & Halifax River Railway arrived in Daytona. The line would be purchased in 1889 by Henry M. Flagler, who made it part of his Florida East Coast Railway. The separate towns of Daytona, Daytona Beach, Kingston, and Seabreeze merged as “Daytona Beach” in 1926, at the urging of civic leader J.B. Kahn and others. By the 1920s, it became known as “The World’s Most Famous Beach”.
Automobile and motorcycle races began in 1902 with a variety of early auto engineers testing their new machines. Daytona hosted numerous land speed record attempts beginning in 1904 when William K. Vanderbilt set an unofficial record of 92.307 mph. Land speed racers from Barney Oldfield to Henry Seagrave to Malcolm Campbell would race repeatedly and made the beach course famous. Record attempts were often made, and on March 7, 1935, Campbell set the record at 276.816 and marked the end of Daytona’s land speed racing days.
The first stock car race was held on March 8, 1936, on the Daytona Beach Road Course which hosted races for over 50 years before being replaced by the Daytona International Speedway in 1958. William France Sr. along with NASCAR developed the track and is now the headquarters for NASCAR and the Grand American Road Racing Association. Automobiles are still permitted on most areas of the beach, but safely at a maximum speed of 10 MPH.
Daytona Beach has a humid subtropical climate, typical of the southeastern United States. Summers are hot and humid with highs usually in the 90s and a heat index often exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Thunderstorms are frequent on summer afternoons and the hot, humid weather can last right through the fall months. Winters are usually dry and mild but can be peppered with a series of cold fronts dropping temperatures into the 30s (F), but only occurring occasionally. The year-round average temperature, (tracked between 1981-2010), was recorded at 70.44F, having an average high of 80.35F and an average low of 61.53. Many visitors have found this climate to be ideal and decide to make Daytona Beach their home or choose to attend one of its many Colleges or Universities including Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, considered by many to be the premier Flight School in the World.
