Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 2 to celebrate Maryland Day with the Deale Historical Society and Galesville Heritage Society by attending a fantastic event - Decoy Carvers of South County. Galesville Memorial Hall, 1-4pm. On display will be generations of local family decoys, works of art as well as utilitarian hunting decoys.

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.
