Update (as of March 31, 2021): Our County has recently moved into the "red" tier and has relaxed restrictions on gatherings.  The El Sobrante Library plans to open to the public (25% capacity) on April 26.  We plan to open to the public a few weeks later on May 8, assuming the trend remains positive.  We can only host a few visitors at a time, and masks are still very much required.  But we would love to see you! Keep checking this site (and our Facebook site) for updates!  

And if you haven't done so, check out our virtual tour, below.



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.
