Dedicated to recording local history for Riverside, California

For more than 100 years, the Riverside Historical Society (and its predecessor, the Pioneer Historical Society of Riverside), have brought together citizens dedicated to learning about our local history and to preserve a record of it for future generations.

The Society meets for lunch and a speaker program on the first Sunday of February, April, June, October, and December of each year. Anyone with an interest in Riverside's history is eagerly encouraged to join us. Please click on the "Calendar" button for a listing of our upcoming public programs.
