The Western Society for French History (WSFH) is, along with the Society for French Historical Studies, one of the two primary historical societies devoted to the study of French history headquartered in the United States.

The WSFH was founded in 1974, and "seeks to promote the study of French and Francophone history."

The WSFH holds an annual meeting and publishes the Proceedings of the Western Society for French History. The 2010 meeting is scheduled for October in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Past presidents of the WSFH include Brison D. Gooch, professor emeritus from Texas A&M University, who is retired in Silverton, Colorado.
