History

In 1962 the Mackle brothers bought 17,203 acres, filed for a planned unit development with 35,143 lots and named the area Deltona. The first Deltona residents arrived in April of 1963. By the end of that year 78 families had arrived in Deltona. That growth rate has remained steady to bring Deltona's population to 71,599 and grants the city status as being the largest city in Volusia County . Deltona was laid out by the Mackle brothers who have a street reverse-named in their honor (Elkcam). Deltona formed from the Mackle brothers idea of "community". The area is mainly populated by younger families living in single family homes. Due to its proximity to downtown Orlando and its theme parks via I-4, the area grew very rapidly between 1970 and 2000 and Deltona has served as a bedroom community for commuters to Orlando ever since. It grew so fast that residents decided to incorporate it into an official city on 31 December 1995 after two previous attempts had failed in 1987 and 1990.
