Welcome to the Placer County Historical Society
Here's your opportunity to be part of a great group. We have been around more than a century. Join us in the
adventure of going through the sluice book of time. Discover those historical golden nuggets to pass on to future
generations. Our purpose is to promote interest in the history of Placer County. We discover, collect and make
accessible historical facts. We mark places of historical interest and sponsor the Placer County Museum. Keep
checking back and explore as our website grows. We welcome suggestions and submissions. For as little as $10
a year you can join us. Click for application.
