Mission & Vision Statements

The Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization dedicated to preserving the heritage of the Santa Clarita Valley, 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. We are headquartered at the Santa Clarita History Center, 24101 Newhall Avenue, Newhall, inside William S. Hart Regional Park, a unit of the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.


The mission of the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society is to preserve and share the culture and history of the Santa Clarita Valley.


The Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society is the region’s most trusted historical resource. The Society is the honest chronicler of its stories, protector of its cultural materials, and advocate for local landmarks. The Society’s Santa Clarita History Center bridges generations and inspires diverse populations through accessible and inclusive exhibitions and activities. The Society employs best practices in collections care and preservation to ensure that the rich historical legacy of our people will be available to current and future generations. Within the decade, the Society’s outreach programs in schools, tours of historic sites, digitized archive, and electronic communications will engage evolving audiences as the Santa Clarita History Center becomes the springboard for historic tourism throughout the region.
