The mission of the Big Sur Historical Society is to preserve historical artifacts and information relative to the Big Sur coast; and to educate the local and visiting public about the area’s history.

BIG SUR HISTORICAL SOCIETY

The Big Sur Historical Society was founded in 1978 to preserve and promote Big Sur’s rich cultural heritage. Over the last 28 years BSHS has grown to an organization with over 100 members, an Archive building and a Museum located in the historic Ranch House at Andrew Molera State Park. BSHS gratefully acknowledges the cooperation of Post Ranch Inn and the California Department of Parks and Recreation in making space available for our Archive and Museum.

MEETINGS

General membership meetings are held 3 – 4 times a year and are usually a field trip with picnic lunch to  local area of interest. Trips are often to private property and so are member-only events.
