“The California Historical Society is the U.S. state of California’s state historical society. It is headquartered in San Francisco. The California Historical Society was founded in 1871. In 1993 the organization purchased 678 Mission Street, home of the former San Francisco Builders Exchange, E.M. Hundley hardware store, and Nancy Pelosi’s first campaign headquarters in the re-developing Yerba Buena Gardens neighborhood. In 2012 the exterior was repainted in Sherwin Williams’ International Orange, the color of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the world-famous suspension bridge.
The Society is a privately funded nonprofit organization that produces original exhibitions; maintains a collection of historical documents, photographs, art and other research materials; hosts educational events; and awards the annual California Historical Society Book Prize. The Society publishes California History, an academic journal, in association with the University of California Press.”
