Deerfield Beach, Florida Information
Deerfield Beach, Florida is located in Broward County. The town is well respected for its cultural diversity, fair weather, and wealth of outdoor activities. Residents of this suburban area are situated north of Miami, the capital and second largest city in Florida, and south of Palm Beach County, the wealthiest region in the state. This tropical locale was founded in the 1890s and was originally called “Hillsborough” after the nearby Hillsboro River.
Deerfield Beach, Florida Details
The city owes much of its growth throughout the 20th century to agriculture, fishing, and the development of the Florida East Coast Railway. More recently, the city has focused on growing its tourism industry, as evidenced by the the addition of “Beach” to the name of the town, formerly called just “Deerfield”, in 1939. However, tourism does not actually contribute the largest portion to the local community. Thriving relationships with Latin countries have lead to economical success in import/export, and cargo transport and warehousing have flourished as a result. A sizable banking industry has also emerged to support these financial relationships.
Deerfield Beach is a mid-sized city with a population just shy of 80,000 as of 2016 estimates, making it the 34th largest community in the state. It is a culturally diverse town. 26 percent of residents are Black or African-American, and 14 percent are Hispanic or Latino. Deerfield specifically boasts the highest populations in the United States of people of Brazilian and Haitian descent, at 11 and 12 percent, respectively. About 39 percent of households have at least one language other than English spoken at home, and 30 percent of residents were born in a country other than the United States.
Education and Careers
24 percent of residents hold a bachelor’s or other advanced degree, slightly higher than the national average. The city has a mix of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs, with especially high portions of residents working sales jobs and office and administrative support at 13 percent each and about 8.9 percent working in food service.
The city’s beach is a popular destination for weddings, tourists of all kinds, and of course residents. It features public surfing areas, volleyball courts, and additional recreational areas for fishing, snorkeling, and more. The Clean Beach Council gave it a “Blue Wave” beach certification for its excellence in water quality, beach conditions, and safety services. The city also works closely with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to protect endangered sea turtles and other species found on the beach. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department sponsors events year-round, including weekly beach dances.
The Deerfield Beach Historical Society has put four sites in the city on the National Register of Historic Places. These are the Old School House, the Butler House, Deerfield Beach Elementary School, and the Deerfield Train Station. All were built in the 1920s. The Old School House and the Butler House are now used as museums showcasing the rich history of the town. The Butler House is a restored Mediterranean Revival-style home first owned by James D. and Alice Butler, a couple who were deeply involved in all aspects of public life. Mr. Butler served on the first school board and many subsequent county boards, and Mrs. Butler helped establish the local Woman’s Club as well as the First Baptist Church of Deerfield. The museum at their former home hosts tours every Saturday and special events the last Sunday of every month. In honor of the town’s history with the Florida East Coast Railway, the historical society is also renovating a 1951 “Little Red Caboose” to be displayed near the Old School House and City Hall.
According to the 2010 US Census, 62.5 percent of occupied residencies are owner-occupied. A full 21.8 percent of households are vacant, about triple the national average. The vacancy rate is highest in the most expensive beachside neighborhoods, as well as in a few neighborhoods affected by seasonal occupancy of college students and vacation home owners. Most housing options in this city are established, but not old, being built from 1970 to 2000.
