The City of Lake Helen, known as “The Gem of Florida,” is located in west Volusia County located immediately off of Interstate 4 (in between Orlando and Daytona Beach).  

Founded by Henry DeLand and named after his daughter, the City was intended as one of the prettiest and most pleasant towns in Florida.  Lake Helen preserves a small-town character, with historic architectures, tree lined roads and lush vegetation.

Lake Helen is not only the perfect location but maintains an old Florida rural town feel.
