Historical Society

The Cloverdale Historical Society is proud to welcome visitors to its museum and brand-new exhibit, meeting and research facility. With support from generous community donors and City grants, we have more than tripled our exhibit and research spaces, re-landscaped our gardens, and improved the historic Gould-Shaw House which was built in 1862. The Cloverdale Historical Society and the Museum are valuable to our community. Their preservation efforts give us a chance to learn more about where we have come from and where we are going.

Founded in 1968, the Cloverdale Historical Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to local historical preservation and education. It is funded solely by activities sponsored by the Society, its members, and its patrons.


The Historical Society meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 10 am at Cloverdale History Center located at 209 North Cloverdale Boulevard.
