Local history matters. That's what a dozen prominent citizens thought in 1965 when they incorporated the Coachella Valley Historical Society. Every community has a story to tell and the Coachella Valley is no different. This exhibit will celebrate the establishment and work of the Society in 1965 along with a step back in time to enjoy mid 60s' car culture, foods, music, films, memorabilia from local high schools, clothing styles and the local and national events that made headlines. Come and see what was here then and is still with us today!
This two-year exhibit can be viewed in the
Heritage Room during normal operating months (October - May) at the CVHM from October 1, 2015 to May 31, 2017. Thursday - Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday 1-4pm
The CVHM Campus is a unique and historical sight capable of hosting events from the most intimate of gatherings to a business retreat to a gala where each of your guest will leave with a memorable experience! Grounds available for your use include:
