Welcome to the Boynton Beach Historical Society! The Society, established in 1968, continues to grow and evolve. While we are not your “mother’s historical society,” we still hold fast to the idea of paying homage to the history of our town. Some of our members are descendants of Florida pioneer families, while others just enjoy learning about history and our community.
I look forward to working with the community, current members and new members during the coming year. I’d like to hear your ideas of how we can make history come alive for you. Are you interested in historic home tours, bicycle tours, or cemetery tours? Do you
want to hear more about the shipwrecks off Boynton’s coast? Would you like to attend a “Happy History Hour”and brainstorm about the future of the Boynton Beach Historical Society? Have you made any recent discoveries, or been bitten by the research bug? Let’s hear from you.
I’m here guiding the ship for the year. I’ve learned a great deal about Boynton history from our members, our community and research. The Society collects and preserves photographs, documents, maps and papers, but it’s the memories, the people, and the connections we establish that propel our Society to new heights!
