Welcome to the Captain James Ormond Chapter NSDAR!

Denise ClarkOrmond Beach is located between Flagler Beach to the north and Daytona Beach to the south. The present-day city of Ormond Beach was named for James Ormond, an Anglo-Irish-Scottish sea captain who was hired by the King of Spain in 1807 to bring Spanish settlers to Florida. He acquired land through a Spanish land grant to begin his own plantation.

Rockefeller bought a home in Ormond Beach and spent winters in his home, The Casements. In 1903, the sands of Ormond Beach became a testing ground for automobile drivers who set speed records on our hard packed beach. Ormond Beach is known as the Birthplace of Speed.
