What better way to learn history than to hear it from the people who lived it? In a collaboration between the Museum of Art – DeLand and the West Volusia Historical Society, the photos of artist Hugh Mangum were brought to life by portrayals by DeLandites of local residents who lived in the same era when his anonymous subjects did.

Mangum’s photographs captured North Carolinians from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the talented re-enactors related some of DeLand’s historic figures from the same era to the photos.
