Become a Friend

Please become a Friend of the La Habra Historical Museum and preserve your legacy to promote the preservation of La Habra History

The La Habra Historical Museum was founded in 2009 through the vision and partnership of La Habra Historian Esther Cramer and the La Habra Old Settlers Historic Society. (LHOSHS) has been community active since 1898 and works hand in hand with the museum with a purpose to gather, preserve and exhibit La Habra historical materials, and a goal to educate generations past, present and future. The museum is open year round on Saturdays from Noon-4pm offering people of all ages free admission to its exhibits. The museum located next door to city hall, is primarily volunteer driven through docents and community individuals.

Friends are a fundraising arm of the LHOSHS. General museum operations require modest expenses which have been met through annual LHOSHS membership donations. Due to the continued success and growth the museum is in need of further support. We are looking to engage community affordable participation, become a Friend of the La Habra Historical Museum. Your gift will help fund a vitally needed action to digitalize 100 years of archived Star publications/newspapers dating back to July 1916. This action will preserve the content for future generations to enjoy research and remember. There is a high concern that early issues will deteriorate eventually losing its images forever unless digitalized soon.  This is a legacy project that you and your family will take participation pride in!
