About DeFuniak Springs, FL - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!
DeFuniak Springs was initially settled mainly by Scots from Virginia and the Carolinas looking for warm weather and fertile soil. This town, like many other in the area, was founded by the railroad in the late 19th century – specifically the Pensacola and Atlantic Railroad. The P&A was planned to unite two former stops on the L & N Railroad. It combined the stops at Pensacola and River Junction (called Chattahoochee today). It got its unusual name from Frederick R. De Funiak, a railroad executive. It is one of many towns in the area that got its name from a railroad investor, executive or businessman.
It was established as a final-destination resort, but not in the way that you may think of today. Developers enlisted the assistance and support of the Chautauqua Movement to build The Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood, an auditorium which sat 4,000. It was constructed on Lake DeFuniak and seminars, classes, and educational opportunities were offered to vacationers. This unusual tourist attraction gave the town an educational and intellectual atmosphere that made it a special destination for those looking for a different kind of holiday. Tourists enjoyed warm weather and a swim in the lake, followed by a lecture at the hall. 1886, the town held an important meeting where teachers from around the state created the Florida Education Association, which remains Florida’s predominant voice for state educators.
If you love history then Defuniak Springs most certainly has you covered. Brotherhood Building is the oldest existing library in the state and contains an interesting assortment of antiquities. They have a large and fascinating collection of medieval weaponry as well as quite a few first-edition rare books. The Walton County Heritage Museum, and St. Agatha's Episcopal Church (built in 1895-1896) would both be great attractions for history buffs. Interestingly, although the population Walton County was strongly against secession, Florida’s first memorial to the Confederate War soldiers is situated on the grass of the Walton County Courthouse, in town. Check out the libraries on a hot summer’s day or duck in from an afternoon thunderstorm and take a look at what the museums have to offer.
