We Share



For over 100 years, the Fresno County Historical Society has worked to bring life to the heritage of our region by collecting, preserving, interpreting and holding in public trust the records and artifacts that document the people of Fresno County and the Central Valley of California. The Society is member-supported and relies on philanthropic donations, sponsorships and grant funds to fulfill our important mission. We provide the community with educational opportunities through excellent events, important exhibitions and by making collections available for study and research.  The Fresno County Historical Society encourages and promotes the preservation and conservation of our community's historic and cultural resources. An enhanced effort is being made to ensure current events are being captured and recorded for the benefit of future generations.
