About Ormond Beach
Ormond Beach is a city in Volusia County, Florida, United States. Ormond Beach was once within the domain of the Timucuan Indians. Ormond Beach was frequented by Timacuan Indians, but never truly inhabited until 1643 when Quakers blown off course to the New England area ran ashore. They settled in a small encampment along the Atlantic shore. Early relations with neighboring tribes were fruitful, however, in 1704 a local Timacuan chief, Oseanoha, led a raid of the encampment killing most of the population. Beginning in 1902, some of the first automobile races were held on the compacted sand from Ormond south to Daytona Beach.
