The Shasta Historical Society is committed to the education and enrichment of the community through their museums, research library, community events, and publications. This rich history is now available online in a searchable database, under research collections.

The Shasta Historical Society was formed on January 18, 1930 for the original purpose of collecting interviews of then-living area pioneers. Over the years the organization’s mission evolved to better serve the community of Shasta County by actively working to promote and communicate local history.

Today, the Shasta Historical Society serves as the largest non-university center for historical research in California north of Sacramento. The library and archives host more than 3,000 researchers, students, and teachers each year. In addition to maintaining the research library, the Shasta Historical Society is active in the local community, hosting various free events throughout the year including a monthly program and walking tour series.

Their museum and research library in downtown Redding CA houses valuable resources and is open to the public Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
