Overview of Ormond Beach

Known as the "Birthplace of Speed," this quiet Floridian community has one of the most unique backgrounds in the state. Home to more than 38,000 residents according to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than a quarter of the city's population is over the age of 65, making Ormond Beach apartments for rent a great option for seniors looking to retire in the area. With a diverse culture and history on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Sunshine State, it is easy to see why so many people are calling Ormond Beach home.

Living in Ormond Beach, FL

The first settlements in the Ormond Beach area happened around 12,000 years ago when Timucuan Native Americans came into the area and named it "Nocoroco" until the Spanish arrived in the 1500s and claimed the areas near Ormond Beach for their king. Once Florida became a British colony, indigo became the biggest export and brought economic growth to the area. Florida's first highway, the King's Railroad was also established near Ormond Beach.

Florida did not begin to gather its true identity until the Spanish and English left in the early 1800s, and sugar and cotton production became cash crops in Ormond Beach along with shipbuilding. Since Florida was largely unoccupied during this time, the state was mostly sold in land grants to wealthy Americans who began to promote the areas around Ormond Beach as an ideal winter vacation site for the wealthy.

At the turn of the 20th century, the area began to promote speed racing after the recent invention of the car. It is even rumored that Henry Ford slept on the beaches here because he could not afford the local hotel fare but still wanted to learn more about the new invention of the automobile. During the roaring 20s, Ormond Beach became a playground for New England's elite, including the Rockefellers. However, the Great Depression and World War II brought many people from diverse backgrounds into the city and forced the city to reinvent itself.
