Historical Society

The Cloverdale Historical Society is proud to welcome visitors to its history museum, historic Gould-Shaw House c. 1862, meeting and research library located in the heart of downtown Cloverdale.  The Cloverdale Historical Society and the Museum are valuable to our community. Our preservation efforts give us a chance to learn more about where we have come from and where we are going. Visit www.cloverdalehistory.org for current exhibit and program information. 

Founded in 1968, the Cloverdale Historical Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to local historical preservation and education. It is funded solely by activities sponsored by the Society, its members, and its patrons.
