|DeFuniak Springs is the county seat for Walton County. The town features many Historic businesses and homes. A stroll through the downtown area to see the many shops, businesses and fine dining establishments would be a good place to start your tour of Walton County.|
|DeFuniak Springs was originally founded by members of the L&N Railroad and was named after Frederick R. DeFuniak, a vice-president of the L&N Railroad. The large, natural spring located near the railroad in the downtown area is where the rest of the name came from and it has since been called DeFuniak Springs. The Chautauqua Movement also helped to establish DeFuniak Springs as a resort destination in which families could visit as a spring and summer vacation area. When touring the downtown area, be sure to visit Lake DeFuniak and you will see many of the Victorian Era homes from this time period. You will also notice the Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood, one of only three buildings actually built lakeside. The Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood was built as a place to hold the many meetings of The Florida Chautauqua. Originally the building had an auditorium that would seat 4,000 people. The auditorium was damaged in 1975 during a hurricane. The main building still remains and is used for various events.|
