CCHS 2020 Annual Meeting

Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 03:00 PM
Historic Route 66 in San Bernardino, CA

Historical societies play a vital role in preserving the records of the past.  Through limited funding and the tireless efforts of volunteers, they keep the story of the surrounding communities alive.  CCHS helps connect historians, and others who are interested in California history, to connect and share information - joining efforts to preserve records, artifacts, sites and buildings throughout the State.  Whether you're interested in celebrating California's history or strengthening your ability to preserve it, our Annual Meeting has something exciting for you.
