People have been flocking to Daytona Beach since the late 1800s, when the area caught the attention of many wealthy northern tycoons who invested in the land. One such mogul named Matthias Day built the first hotel in Daytona Beach in 1874 – the Palmetto House. This trend continued with other entrepreneurs envisioning a city of commerce and a thriving tourist trade. Commodore Charles Burgoyne began by building a community center in Daytona Beach in the early 1900s and he organized concerts along the riverfront to promote the town to travelers. Later, John D. Rockefeller discovered Ormond Beach's immaculate golf courses and made his winter home here.
