The First Enterprise Courthouse
In 1854 the part of Orange County east of the river became Volusia County with Enterprise as the county seat. The first courthouse (may be the one shown here) was built not far behind Brock’s hotel on the lakefront where the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home now stands. Brock later donated land at the site of the present Enterprise Elementary School for a second courthouse that was built around 1867. Close by on the courthouse grounds was the first official Enterprise cemetery.
