Welcome to The Society of California Pioneers

Thank you for joining. The Society of California Pioneers was established in 1850 and is perpetuated by direct descendants of those who arrived in California prior to January 1, 1850. We preserve, promote, and celebrate California heritage through social events, education programs, publications, and outings to historic sites. We operate a research library and a museum where members, school children, and the general public enjoy art, artifacts, and historic documents from the collection we have amassed and maintained since 1850.
