The City is named for Leonard Destin, a fishing captain from New London, Connecticut, who settled in the area in the late 1840s. Captain Destin and his descendants fished the area for many decades. Condos began being built in Detin in the 1970s. The City was incorporated in 1984. [Destin, Florida, en.wikipedia.org, accessed Auguest, 2016]
