The Gustine Historical Society seeks to uncover, preserve and disseminate knowledge about the history of Gustine and the “West Side” of California. Gustine has a long and rich history that mirrors the development of California’s agriculture. Society members collect artifacts, memorabilia, documents, books, maps, periodicals, articles, photographs and items pertaining to Gustine and its surrounding area. These artifacts are housed in the Wilbur and Irene Gomes Gustine History Center and in creative exhibits in the Gustine Museum. They link Gustine’s past to the people who made it happen.
If you have materials that you would like to have preserved for future generations, the Gustine Historical Society will be happy to accept such items that fit within our goals. Please contact us.
The Wilbur and Irene Gomes Gustine History Center has a treasure trove of photographs and documents that can aid in family research. The History Center is open on Thursday and Sunday afternoons from 1-4 pm. You may call the center at 209-854-6455 or 209-854-3120 for an appointment to visit at an unscheduled time.”
