“Del Norte History, More Precious than Gold.”

Our mission is to discover, collect, preserve and present the documents, structures, artifacts and ideas pertaining to Del Norte County, and to provide suitable museums or homes for such items in order to maintain them as public educational resources. The Del Norte County Historical Society is staffed by volunteers and supported by the general membership through annual dues, contributions, and special events.

The general public supports the Society through their donations, admissions paid, research and reproduction fees paid and purchases made from our gift stores in both the Main Museum and at Battery Point Lighthouse. The Society also is supported by bequests and family donations made in honor of loved ones recognized in our “Book of Memories”.

Members receive a quarterly publication of the Society called “Reflections.” Members also receive discounts in our gifts shop, free admission to both the Museum and Battery Point Lighthouse and special invitations to Society events and educational programs.

We are a charitable, non-profit 501( c )3 organization. All contributions are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by IRS Codes.
