THE HISTORY OF THE EASTERN FRESNO COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

JUNE 11, 1991

A group of local community members of the Foothills of Eastern Fresno County, California met at the home of Bud and Carol Olson in Auberry. The small group encouraged life long resident and local historian Bud Olson to take the reigns with the group's assistance and create a venue that showcases and safeguards our history for the future.


It was their dreams to ensure our local history was preserved, cataloged, displayed and restored for all to see, learn and enjoy.
