How We're Helping

We are a community-based non-profit organization focused on providing access and education about the history of the Deale Community.  The Chaney Family and Herrington Harbour North have provided a small piece of history at the Historic Village and allows the Society to operate the Deale Museum and be a part of that re-creation in the Nutwell Schoolhouse.
