Welcome to the Conference of California Historical Societies!


Preserving California History by unifying and strengthening Historical Organizations throughout the State. 


Our 66th Annual Meeting was great. Thanks to Barbara Kimbell and Gary Bancroft for their efforts in organizing and Christine Esser in supporting the event. We took COVID precautions and were committed to the health and safety of all our members.  Please visit our City-County Highlights page to take a virtual tour of California, with a different city highlighted each month!

  The Conference of California Historical Societies was formed in 1953 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!
