About

Serving Moorpark for over 35 Years!

The Moorpark Historical Society, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1979 by a group of civic-minded residents who realized the importance of “Preserving the past for the future.” The Society’s main focus has been to keep the history of our city alive via our walking tours, yearly membership meetings, high school scholarships, and partnerships with Moorpark schools. We are currently working to archive the Society’s historical photos, ephemera, and memorabilia. We are also reaching out to others in the community who are willing to donate, loan, or allow us to reproduce and catalog their historically significant photos and objects from our city’s past. One of our greatest challenges has been finding a suitable building to house our collection and also serve as a historical museum for the community.

We welcome the participation and support of the community in our endeavor to keep the history of Moorpark alive!
