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.
The Deale Museum will open Sunday, May 5, 1-4pm for the 2024 season. You are welcome to contact us through this webpage to request touring the Village by appointment anytime of year, or you may call 410 867-4281. Docents will be happy to guide you through the artifacts and displays in the Deale Museum as well as touring you through the various historic buildings. The Museum is located in the old Nutwell School building in the Historic Village at Herrington Harbour North in Tracy's Landing, Maryland.
We meet at 7pm the second Monday of each month unless otherwise posted on this website or Facebook. Currently we meet at the Cedar Grove Church Ministry center conference room, 5965 Deale Churchton Road, Deale, MD 20751 (across from South County Cafe and behind the Deale War Memorial). All are welcome, no membership required.
Memberships are available at the Individual ($20), Family ($30) and Student ($15) levels. Donations in any amount are always welcome. 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 could not accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
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 in the Nutwell Schoolhouse and be a part of that historic area re-creation.
