Due to concerns about the potential impact of the COVID-19 virus, and in response to state mandates: 
The Society of California Pioneers has closed our office, museum and library to the public. The staff will continue to assist members and researchers via email; click here for online research options recommended by our staff.
 We will re-evaluate the situation on May 31. 
Updates will be posted here.
We thank you very much for your understanding.
