Thank you for choosing to support the California History Center

The California History Center is dedicated to preserving the rich tapestry of our state's heritage. With a focus on California and regional studies, the center and its foundation curates exhibits, facilitates educational classes in collaboration with De Anza College, publishes The Californian magazine, and maintains an extensive library and archives. Additionally, the CHC fosters engagement through lectures, panel discussions, workshops and our annual A Taste of History event. Currently, student interns are digitizing and expanding our collection of over 400 historic oral history recordings.
