Who We Are

The Boca Raton Historical Society is celebrating its 50th year!

The BRHS was founded in 1972 as a private, non-profit member organization and is headquartered in Historic Town Hall, built in 1927 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The BRHS owns and operates The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum, which opened in November 2021 after extensive building upgrades and the installation of its History Alive! exhibits.

The mission and purpose of the Boca Raton Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and present information and artifacts relevant to the past and evolving history of Boca Raton and to maintain a visible role in education and advocacy of historic preservation in our community.
