About Hidden Valley Park

Richard and Jeane Schuler started construction on Hidden Valley in 1957 and did almost everything himself. Richard graduated from Penn-State University with a Forestry degree. This degree equipped him with the skills needed to survey, layout, and build the community. Jeane graduated from Stetson as a music major and is our best resident relations specialist. Richard taught school by day and worked in the Park on evenings and weekends. Their two children, Mark and Deanna, were raised in the Park and have many fond memories of life centered around social interaction with their many, many grandparents. They also have not such fond memories of digging up water lines on countless holidays. Mark is now our grounds supervisor and wastewater manager, while Deanna works with the Park finances. Micah, Richard and Jeane’s Grandson, graduated from Stetson University with a Business Administration degree. He now works alongside his grandparents to one day manage the community with Deanna and Mark’s support & guidance. Deanna, Mark, Richard, Jeane, and Micah all hold a degree from our local, Deland, Stetson University.
