WE TELL YOUR STORY!

Today our remarkable archive and artifact collection represents the cultures, communities, struggles and successes of life in Palm Beach County, and the larger context of Florida’s heritage. There are many ways to connect with the collections, among them a visit to the Johnson History Museum, presented by the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. The County’s past is chronicled in fascinating displays featuring notable stories and notable figures, including Henry Morrison Flagler, Addison Mizner, the Barefoot Mailmen, and the 2000 Presidential election. 

The Society also maintains an active Research Library that is open to the public. The archive documents the people and events that have shaped our community.

 All of this would not be possible without people like you, who donate their treasures and

And at long last, the public is able to visit these collections remotely, to experience the legacy we strive to protect and share. You can now access over 13,000 records in our online catalogue. And we continue to grow! While this is nowhere near our entire collection, it is a good representation of the fascinating story we tell.

DONATE TO THE ORAL HISTORY PROJECT:

First-hand accounts of pivotal events are priceless, and we constantly strive to do as much as we can to capture them. There is no greater regret than to lose the narrative of our history as entire generations pass away or individuals are lost. Oral Histories can be used by historians, biographers, students, teachers, and residents of our community to explore our past. Help us protect these rich and telling stories which may include notable figures, neighbors, family and friends through a gift to the Oral History Project.
