The Central Sierra Historical Society and Museum, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) public benefit corporation with a membership of over 500 individuals, businesses, and organizations. CSHS was founded in 1991. Its’ roots however date back to the early 1980’s, when a group of individuals in the central Sierra recognized the need for an organized effort to preserve the fast-disappearing history of the area.
