For hundreds of years, the area that is now Deerfield Beach was home to the Seminole natives. The first non-natives arrived in the area in 1877. Situated between the growing towns of Miami and Palm Beach, Deerfield Beach saw little developement until a post office was established in 1898. By that time, there were 20 settlers living in the area. Deerfield Beach continued to grow slowly- the intersection of what are now known as Hillsboro Boulevard and Dixie Highway became the center of the village's activity, and by 2910 there were a few stores and hotels. The business was based on Deerfield's railroad station, which farmers used to send their crops along the railroad built by Henry Flagler. Tourism became a significant part of Deerfield Beach's economy. Visitors came to appreaciate the palmetto trees, the flowers, and, of course, the beaches that Deerfield Beach presents.

Today, Deerfield Beach has a population of 50,000 residents. Its iconic pier and pink brick beachside walkway attract visitors year-round. This website exists as a guide to the city that Deerfield Beach has become.
