History and collections
The California Historical Society was founded in 1871. In 1993 the organization purchased 678 Mission Street, which was formerly home to the San Francisco Builders Exchange and E.M. Hundley hardware store.
The Society is now located statewide, is privately funded, and is a nonprofit organization. The Society operates the North Baker Research Library containing a collection of manuscripts, maps, posters, printed ephemera, books, and pamphlets. The library also features various works by Eadweard Muybridge and Ansel Adams. The Society publishes California History, an academic journal
Exhibits are drawn from the society's collection of historic documents, photographs and fine art.
