Our Mission

Butler HouseThe Deerfield Beach Historical Society, founded in 1973, inspires public awareness and appreciation of the diverse people, places, and events that contribute to Deerfield Beach’s evolving history.

Philosophically, as the city’s principal agency for historic preservation, we bring history to our community through a wide variety of programs, exhibitions, publications, special events, and outreach services, in the belief that an understanding of history can provide connections to the past, a sense of belonging in the present, and responsibility for the future.
