The Museum is the result of the desire of MPHF (Mission Peak Heritage Foundation) and WTHS (Washington Township Historical Society) to have a permanent place to display historical artifacts each collected over the years. The two history organizations formed the Museum of Local History Guild and elected a Board of Directors. The Guild board ensures that education; archival research and preservation of the historical resources of Washington Township are the focus of the museum.
Preserve Southern Alameda County memories, documents, artifacts, and structures from the past and share them with present and future generations.
In collaboration with the two founding historical societies and other historical groups we accomplish this mission through the following activities:
Tours of :
Oral Histories: Conduct and publish
Collections: Catalogue and share our Archives, objects,photographs
Publications: Publish historical papers, historical articles, videos etc. through books, publications, website, other social media.
Events: Presentations and special event gatherings
