We Share





For over 100 years, the Fresno City & County Historical Society has worked to bring life to the variegated tapestry of our region by collecting, preserving, and holding in public trust the stories, records and artifacts that document the rich heritage of the people of Fresno and the Central Valley of California. We provide the community with educational opportunities through multi-cultural curriculum, oral histories in several languages, diverse events, ethnic and artistic exhibitions and by making our collections available for study and research.  The Fresno City & County Historical Society encourages and promotes the preservation and conservation of our community's historic and traditional resources in order to better understand our past and capture our present for the benefit of the generations yet to come.
