The Barons Ball Historic Event

Historic Impressionists of Florida

You are hereby invited October 8, 2022 to our Annual Baron's Ball.

Be a part of this fun filled evening event honoring the wonderful turn of the century history of the Daytona Beach area!

The event is set between 1890 and 1920 for attire or come dressed in modern formal wear and have a great time!

The evening will be a showcase of what an evening would have been like in the golden years of our area’s history.

Henry Flagler bought the Ormond Hotel in 1889 and made it a must stop for the wealthy vacationers coming to Florida. John D. Rockefeller came for years to Winter in the area and eventually bought The Casements in 1918.
During this time, the rich and the famous from around the world came to vacation and winter in Ormond Beach. These included Edward, the Prince of Wales, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Al Capone and comedian Will Rogers who once said to Rockefeller while visiting here:

‘"I’m glad you won at golf today, Mr. Rockefeller. The last time you lost, the price of gasoline went up!"

The Ball will be held at the Halifax River Yacht Club at 331 S. Beach St, Daytona Beach, Florida 32114. This Yacht Club was founded in 1896 and is the oldest continually operating yacht club in the Eastern United States.
Many of the people named above were members or guests of ‘The Club’.
Many historical reenactors will be wearing authentic clothing designs from the time frame. Attendees can dress either in clothing from this age or modern evening wear.
