about the volunteers at walnut creek historical society

The Walnut Creek Historical Society is governed by a Board of local community members who believe passionately in the importance of preserving Walnut Creek’s heritage.

Our Board members involve themselves directly in the Historical Society’s work, serving as museum docents, tour guides, program leaders, and historical researchers and preservationists.

They donate generously to the Historical Society themselves and participate in our fundraisers and work throughout the community to expand the awareness of Walnut Creek’s history.
