Welcome to the Orange County Historical Society
The Orange County Historical Society (OCHS) is a non-profit group which collects, preserves and shares the history of Orange County, California for the benefit of its members and the general public. To navigate the OCHS Website, use the menus and links in the top and left panels, or click Site Map. Check back often to find the latest Society news.

 

 

We’re proud to announce that the society has a new office/archive/research center on the grounds of the historic Heritage Museum of OC in Santa Ana.  The photo above shows the full two-story building.  (We’re currently only in the first floor space.)

The office will serve as our new headquarters and safely store all our various Orange County books, historical papers, images, and artifacts. Once we establish a trained volunteer staff for the office, the facility will enable members and historians to view and research our collection.

General and board meetings will continue to be held at the Trinity Episcopal Church on Canal Street in Orange.

If you need more information or are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us at info@orangecountyhistory.org.
