Deerfield Beach Historical Society

The Deerfield Beach Historical Society was founded in October of ’73 and incorporated in June of ’91. It is the second oldest Historical Society in Broward County. The Society is responsible for four historical properties, all of which are on the State Register of Historic Places or the prestigious National Register.

The Society, with offices located in the Historic Butler House, is the city’s principal agency for historic preservation.

Thirty-seven founders registered the society as a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring history to the community through a wide variety of programs, exhibitions, publications and other outreach services.  with the responsibility of presenting history to the general public in such a way as to educate and inform them about the rich heritage of the Deerfield Beach area.
