Searles Valley Historical Society

 WHO ARE WE?  OUR ORGANIZATION SITE MAP

 Our Purpose
The Searles Valley Historical Society was founded in 1979 as a non-profit corporation. Its primary purpose is to bring together people interested in history, especially in the history of Searles Valley and the surrounding regions from the Argus Range to Death Valley. The Searles Valley Historical Society also strives to preserve the history of Searles Valley and surrounding regions for future generations.  The society has several activities to achieve these goals, including our Old Guest House Museum, the Searles Valley History House, the Trona Railway Museum and the Trona Railway Caboose, and this internet web site. 

The Searles Valley Historical Society also maintains the Old Guest House Museum as an "historical research facility."  Historical records are retained by the museum for legitimate onsite historical research. The archive records available can be found through the following link  ArchivesSitemap.html
