Welcome to the CONFERENCE of California Historical Societies. CCHS was founded in 1954 as a federation of historical societies, museums, libraries, and other history-oriented groups and individuals.

helps historians, and others who are interested in history, to connect and share information -- joining efforts to preserve records, artifacts, sites, and buildings.

also helps local societies and small museums with skills in management, acquisition, preservation, and restoration techniques.

This site is an extension of that effort. We hope you can learn from it and will enjoy it's resources. If you are not yet a member, please consider joining. Your help will make us stronger and you will gain the various benefits available only to members.

Join us for a journey into the past and present – from La Purisima Mission founded in 1787 to Vandenberg Air Force Base beginning in 1941 and remaining active today.

I like the new communicative approach from the executive board of representing CCHS as a forward thinking, efficient and effective, must be part of, organization that is dynamic and will make the necessary changes to secure its place in promoting California history.

Come to the Fall Symposium in Sebastopol. It is a winner and the bus ride to Bodega and Fort Ross is beyond description. Fort Ross is a real treat. How many of you know that the Russians came to California? Learn when and why and much much more. Register now at californiahistorian.com.
