The San Anselmo Historical Commission was established in June 22, 1976 to preserve the history of San Anselmo and to make the Town’s historical heritage known to its present day residents. The functions of the Commission include:
- research and publication of aspects of San Anselmo history,
- interview old-time residents and record their oral histories,
- collect, identify, and catalog photographs and memorabilia,
- design permanent and temporary displays for the Historical Museum,
- manage the Historical Museum, and
- advise Town Council and town departments on historical matters.
The Commission is composed of eleven members appointed by a majority vote of the Town Council. The members as of June 2017 are:
Liz Anderson, Secretary
Judy Coy, Chairperson
Dick Miner, Vice Chairperson
Youth Commissioners: 2 permitted
The Commission meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7:30 pm in the Historical Museum. The public is welcome to attend the meetings. If you are interested in serving on the commission, you will find the application here.
The San Anselmo Historical Society was first organized March 18, 1998 for the purpose of enhancing the Historical Museum’s activities. It is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with individual and family memberships available. Members of the Society enjoy our newsletters and our fun events.
With income from dues and contributions, the Society has provided funds for software to manage the Museum’s collection and for improvements in the exhibit space in the Museum.
