The Dean Doll House
William Henry Deen was a pioneer resident of Flagler County. Born in Bailey, Georgia, in 1873, he came to the area from Chipley, Florida, in 1906. “Doc,” as he was known to his friends, was a local farmer. In 1919 he built a home at 805 E. Moody Blvd. He passed away in 1962 at the age of 88. Doc Dean’s son, William Welch Deen, had a son, Billy, Jr., and a daughter named Delores. Christmas morning, 1955, was to be quite special for 6 year-old Delores - she awoke to a hand-built doll house, constructed by her Aunt Margaret Jane Deen’s stepfather, Perry Hunt, on the Hunt family farm in Orange Mills, Florida. Many “tea parties” took place in the doll house with neighborhood children, and with Delores’ grandfather, “Doc.”
The iconic doll house was donated to the Flagler County Historical Society in 2021 by Delores Deen and will be preserved for all future generations to enjoy for many years to come. Contact us for more information on how to preserve local history.
