Hayward Area Historical Society (HAHS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to documenting the history of the city of Hayward, California and adjacent communities.[1][2][3] These areas include San Lorenzo, Ashland, Cherryland,[4] Castro Valley, Fairview, the former communities of Russell City, Mount Eden, Schafer Park, and other parts of unincorporated Alameda County. The society was founded in 1956.[5] Their museum in Downtown Hayward is closed as of 2012 until a new location is opened.[6][7][8]

Activities[edit]

They operate the Meek Mansion and McConaghy House in partnership with the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District,[9] and the San Lorenzo Pioneer Cemetery with Alameda County.[10][11] The society sponsors an annual History Awards, honoring local historians and preservationists. The 2012 awards were the 13th held.[12] They have presented talks on local history in conjunction with California State University, East Bay.[13] They provide records for research into genealogies.[14] They have worked with award winning photographer Bill Owens on the Hayward Documentary Project.[15] The Society is the future repository for the papers of local US Congressperson Pete Stark, in office for 40 years.[16]
