It's a land in which we often impose our dreams. This notion of vastness, . . . this notion of unknown empty spaces in which you can project then all kinds of images, all kinds of dreams and aspirations onto the land.

~ Alex Sargoza, A Land Between Rivers, 2006

Become a member of the Fresno Historical Society!

Anyone who has a love for the history of Fresno County and the central San Joaquin Valley can become a member. Support from individuals, corporations and foundations have always been critical to the effort to save our history. Your partnership is important to us as the Historical Society makes strides to preserve and share the extraordinary story of the San Joaquin Valley.

Your partnership and contributions sponsor living history events and celebrate local history through exhibits, publications, and lectures. Contributions from our members are essential to help maintain an archives that houses the history of the central San Joaquin Valley with records dating from 1848 to the 1990s. We continue to collect family papers, organizational records, and photographs that tell the story of Fresno County to build our archives. The Fresno Historical Society administers one of the most significant historic sites in the San Joaquin Valley, the Kearney Mansion Museum, home of agricultural pioneer, M. Theo Kearney. We need your support to continue to protect and share fascinating local history.
