    The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located at 170 NW Fifth Avenue in the historic West Settlers District of Delray Beach, is dedicated to discovering, collecting and sharing the African-American history and heritage of Florida. Located in the former home of the late Solomon D. Spady, the most prominent African American educator and community leader in Delray Beach from 1922 to 1957, the museum opened in July 2001 and is the only African American Cultural Heritage museum of its kind in Palm Beach County.

    It has become a destination for people of all cultures seeking information about Florida’s early black communities and culture. The museum has exhibited a series of shows, highlighting the talents and influences of African-Americans, Caribbean-Americans and Haitian-Americans. Shows ranging from handmade quilts to photographs from the Civil Rights movement have adorned the Spady Museum. In addition, through its Kids Cultural Club, Trolley Tours, special events, annual Living Heritage Day and guest lecture series, the museum has moved beyond Delray Beach, reaching statewide and regional audiences.

    Through its Kids Cultural Club, the museum conducts community outreach programs for youngsters; it has also produced two documentaries, Colored Town, and African American Neighborhoods of Old Delray Beach that are available to the community. For more information about the S.D. Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, visit the museum on Northwest Fifth Avenue in downtown Delray Beach, one and a half blocks north of Atlantic Avenue, or call the museum at 561-279-8883.
