Sonoma Valley Historical Society

MISSION STATEMENT The mission of the Sonoma Valley Historical Society is to provide a forum and a resource for the study and dissemination of Sonoma Valley history for present and future generations by identifying collecting, preserving and sharing artifacts, documents and images. The Historical Society was established in 1937 by the descendants of pioneer families and others with the goal of preserving the history of Sonoma Valley. Many families donated personal historic documents. Since 1978 the Historical Society has run the Depot Park Museum in Depot Park and has stored much of the archives at that location. The Sonoma Valley Historical Society is re-locating its Archives and Research facility at the historic Marcy House 205 First Street West. The facility will be open by appointment only and initially on a limited basis until the archive is organized. There are a modest number of research requests because of the lack of digital access.
