Regarding Volusia County Historic Courthouse. The Volusia County Historic Courthouse is also known as the Old Volusia County Court House. Though still in use to house county government offices, the building was replaced by a new Volusia County Court House in 2001. The new court house was built at the opposite end of East Indiana Avenue, where it meets North Alabama Avenue.
W.D. Harper & Co., of Daytona Beach, were selected as the architects for the building. Features include interior and exterior fluted Corinthian columns, and a copper dome and belfry which house four clock faces, four cast bronze bells, and an art-glass dome over the rotunda.
