Welcome to the El Sobrante Historical Society History Center
On this page you will see plans for our new museum and a timeline for its anticipated opening. Check here for regular updates.
grand opening postponed
Unfortunately, because of the current and on-going restrictions on public gatherings and recommendations from the County Health Department, the Grand Opening of the El Sobrante History Center will not take place as planned until it is safe to do so. Once the History Center can open for public gatherings, we will announce it here and on Facebook. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience and support during this critical time. Your health and safety is important to us.
Until then, we have created a virtual tour of the History Center which can be viewed below.
EL SOBRANTE HISTORY CENTER
Located behind the El Sobrante Library at 4300 Garden Road.
By the way, the new name for the building is The Nancy Fahden House. Nancy Fahden was the first woman supervisor in CC County, and she used this building as her office for a time. It seemed a fitting tribute to honor Nancy as one of the "firsts" in our county.
The new ESHS museum is housed in the old Community building, located behind the library. The entrance to the museum is at the far right of the building. We are nicely situated in the new community park, and will have ready access to the park space to hold society events.
