The Mill Valley Historical Society is a non-profit organization formed in 1977 with the primary purpose of educating the community about local history.
The Society organizes and sponsors a series of First Wednesday Presentations
on topics of historical interest.
The Society also publishes the Mill Valley Historical Review, an annual 16-page magazine featuring articles and photographs on subjects related to Mill Valley history, which is available in the Library's Lucretia Little History Room
, or on the History Room's website
On the Sunday of every Memorial Day weekend, the Society stages a Walk into History, commemorating the anniversary of the 1890 land auction that initiated the development of Mill Valley. Each year a different part of Mill Valley is highlighted on a short walking tour led by trained guides.
The Oral History Committee preserves memories of Mill Valley's past through the Oral History Project
, which consists of taped interviews of long-time Mill Valley residents, transcribed and edited. The tapes are available for listening in the History Room, and the transcripts are available for checkout.
