Step back in time at Deerfield Beach’s James D. and Alice Butler House, now open for free tours 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday.
The Mediterranean Revival-style building at 380 E. Hillsboro Blvd. is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, and showcases many of its original furnishings from the 1920s.
The Butlers settled in Deerfield Beach in 1910, when the city’s eponymous deer still inhabited its banks. James Butler sat on Broward County’s first School Board and also served on the County and City commissions. Alice Butler helped start the Deerfield Beach Woman’s Club.
