The Berkeley Historical Society, founded in the summer of 1978 from the ad-hoc Berkeley Centennial Celebration Committee, is a non-profit group dedicated to researching, preserving and sharing Berkeley’s history. Through exhibits, lectures, walking tours and publications, an appreciation for the uniqueness of the city and the diversity of cultures that comprise the rich mosaic of Berkeley has been fostered and recognized.
The Berkeley Historical Society was now able to maintain the Berkeley History Center with a library, exhibition space and an archive in which to house and maintain the vast collection of photographs, materials and memorabilia relating to Berkeley.
