A YES Vote to ECHO!
"In order to instill respect, and passion for history, it must first be preserved."
Twenty years ago Volusia county residents voted to support Environment, Cultural, Historic and Outdoor resources through the ECHO Fund.
Since then the Barberville Pioneer Settlement has benefited as a recipient of three ECHO grants, which have enabled us to preserve two of the county's most significant historical treasures. The Central School of Barberville built in 1919, and the area's oldest brick residence, built circa 1879 by pioneers, the Joseph Underhill House.
The Barberville Pioneer Settlement would not be what it is today without Volusia County residents' support of the ECHO program. I urge you to watch this short video as well as the longer version to learn why the ECHO program is deserving of your support again.
The contribution to the ECHO fund, per average homeowner is just $25 annually. Which equates to just twenty cents per one thousand dollars of taxable value.
The Barberville Pioneer Settlement hopes to utilize ECHO grants for future historic preservation projects for future generations..
Please vote Yes to ECHO!
