Welcome to the Central Sierra Historical Society
The Central Sierra Historical Society's purpose is to create and operate a historical society and museum for the purpose of preservation and display of the history, antiques, artifacts and historical memorabilia of the Central Sierra mountain area.
We are a Museum Without Walls
"Museums ought to be the center around which educational institutions should cluster, the storehouse whence they could draw the material examples and illustrations required on the lecture table and in the classroom." -J. Patton 1886
The CSHS Museum of the Central Sierra is located at 42642 Tollhouse Rd. in Shaver Lake CA. Turn right at the Camp Edison Campground entrance. We are on the right side before you arrive at the check-in kiosk.
