The Halifax Historical Society was founded in 1949. The mission of the Society is to gather, preserve, educate and present the history of the Halifax River area to the public.
Since 1986 the Halifax Historical Museum has been housed in the 103 year old former Merchant's Bank Building located in the heart of the downtown historical district of Daytona Beach. The building was built in 1910 and is a destination in itself.
Visitors often comment that this museum and it's impressive collections are one of the best kept "secrets" in the North Central Florida area. The museum is warm and inviting. The collection is astounding. Come see us!
