Local History & Information

Library and Internet resources for discovering local history and information in the Central Valley of California

Be Prepared to Visit Libraries & Historical Societies:

To gain access to many of these useful resources, you will need to actually go to local libraries and historical societies, because most of this old, local information is not available online.

Historical Societies for California and Local Resources

Historical societies are a great source for finding local information. I recommend you call them before you plan a visit to let them know you'd like to use their archives for a school research paper.
