Description:

The Deerfield Beach Historical Society was established in 1973 by volunteers dedicated to preserving Deerfield’s history for future generations. They collected and preserved vintage photographs and picture postcards, the area’s earliest newspapers and magazines, original letters and diaries, and early maps, surveys, and government documents. Today the Society is proud to have four local sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They are: The Old School Museum, 1920; The Butler House, 1923; Deerfield Beach Elementary, 1926 and the Deerfield Train Station, 1926.
