The Conference of California Historical Societies was formed in 1954 as a means to bring together the many historical societies and museums throughout the State to share their common needs and expertise, and to bind them together in the interest of history in California.  Members have endeavored to find the ways of helping and informing each other of the problems that often can be better solved by group efforts - we learn from each other!
