Berkeley Historical Society

The mission of the Berkeley Historical Society is to foster appreciation and understanding of our city’s unique history by residents and visitors alike through research, collection, preservation, exhibition and publication of historical records, photographs, artifacts and other media.

The Society was founded in the summer of 1978 from the ad-hoc Berkeley Centennial Celebration Committee, It is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization with a museum space, library and archives housed in the Veterans Memorial Building, 1931 Center Street, facing Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park.
