To protect the health and safety of our members and the public, all meetings and special events will be cancelled further notice. Please watch our posts here and on Facebook for updates on upcoming events. We hope to reopen the Museum soon, participate in Maryland Day and observe the community 14th Annual Memorial Day Remembrance.
Our mission is to collect preserve and exhibit documents, images, oral histories and artifacts related to the history of Deale, Maryland and the surrounding area. Our goal is to share and make accessible this history to the local community and general public.
Memberships are available at the Individual ($20), Family ($30) and Student ($15) levels. Donations in any amount are welcome and memberships and donations may be mailed to DAHS, PO Box 5, Deale, MD 20751. Checks should be made payable to Deale Area Historical Society.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
The Deale Museum is located in the old Nutwell School building located in the Historic Village at Herrington Harbour North in Tracy's Landing Maryland. The Museum is currently open by appointment only.
Raffle tickets will remain available for this beautiful Green Wing Teal decoy carved and painted by local Deale craftsman, Joe Caldwell. Drawing will be rescheduled for a later date.
2021 will be the Fourteenth year for this wonderful community event. Please watch this web page and our Facebook page for updates and plans for the Memorial Day Remembrance 2021.
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.
