Description

The Fresno Historical Society Archives welcomes the use of its collections. The mission of an Archives includes two equally important components. In addition to providing access to primary source material for study and research, an Archives is a repository that is charged with the preservation of primary source materials of all kinds.

The Historical Society Archives works to make accessible and preserve our collections, and we have established policies and procedures to protect our holdings for the future.

•Researchers have access to the holdings of the Historical Society Archives by appointment only. The archivist will schedule your appointment after a research interview.

History

The Historical Society’s beginnings are tied to pioneer families some of whom immigrated to the Valley prior to the Gold Rush in 1848, others who came after California became a State and helped establish the town of Millerton in the 1850s, and still others who came some time after the railroad was built Valley in the early 1870s.

The Society’s founders recognized that an appropriate setting for sharing the story of the Central Valley would contribute significantly to developing a strong sense of identity as a region as well as a strong sense of community. They knew as we know today that museums can play a vital role in society building. And so these founders set a goal back in 1919-----to create a history museum. Today we’re working to make their vision a reality
