In 1910, Deerfield Beach gained two new citizens who would have a lasting impact on the community.  James D. Butler and his wife, Alice came from Texas. This Mediterranean Revival style building was the home of Deerfield Beach pioneers and civic leaders, James D. and Alice Butler. The house and grounds were bequeathed to the Deerfield Beach Historical Society in 1977.  It is now the group’s headquarters and is operated as a museum.  The historic Butler House has been completely restored.  It contains many of the original furnishings with the exception of the dining room table that was replaced after the first one was used to board up the west dining room window during the 1928 hurricane.  Furnishings include the wicker furniture purchased by the Butlers in 1923 for $500.
