Housed in the historic 1916 Courthouse, the Historical Society of Palm Beach County offers exhibits covering thousands of years of history in Palm Beach.
The Historical Society of Palm Beach County is a non-profit organization whose mission is to collect, preserve and share the history of Palm Beach County. The Society maintains a large library on the history of Palm Beach County, Florida and the Caribbean. Through the Society's archives, which include nearly two million photographic images, maps, newspapers, journals, periodicals, architectural drawings, and research files, the Society maintains an active research facility and documents the people and events that have shaped Palm Beach County. In addition, the multiple educational programs and initiatives of the Historical Society in schools and communities are of primary importance to our mission of building an understanding and appreciation of local history in our children.
