Stetson University Campus Historic District
Stetson Flagler Hall 2, Deland, FL. Flagler Hall was financed by railway magnate Henry M. Flagler, who also built hotels down the east coast of Florida.
Flagler himself dictated its Mediterranean style, which he used for several other projects. Arched window openings and terra cotta cast Mediterranean ornamentation are major features. The main entrance features a broken pediment and bust of Benjamin Franklin in an elaborate arch surround of cast terra cotta. On the second story, over the entrance, is a recessed balcony with ornamented terra cotta columns, and over the third is a monumental tablet breaking the roofline.
