About Fair Oaks Historical Society
The Fair Oaks Historical Society was formed in 1975 to preserve the history and heritage of Fair Oaks. The Historical Society conducts research, records oral histories, has published a booklet: The Early Years of Fair Oaks, and has reproduced a 1900 map of Fair Oaks. Located at 10340 Fair Oaks Blvd., our History Center was established as a repository and museum of Fair Oaks artifacts.
To accomplish this mission the Fair Oaks History Center will:
preserve the historical record of the area known as Fair Oaks, California 95628; that of its first inhabitants, the San Juan Rancho, the early settlers of the Sunset Colony, and of succeeding generations.
educate the public on the history of Fair Oaks and its people through written, oral and media presentations, website publication, and social media, and respond to public inquiries regarding Fair Oaks History.
establish, operate and maintain an educational and research center and museum on Fair Oaks History for the benefit of the general public.
conduct research on the founders of Fair Oaks, and the agricultural, civic, religious, and cultural activities throughout its history, and keep authoritative and permanent recordings of the facts in a repository.
