The Palo Alto Historical Association, a non-profit organization, was established in its present form in 1948 as a successor to an earlier organization founded in 1913.

The main objectives of the Association are:

The Palo Alto Historical Association maintains the historic archives for the City of Palo Alto. The Guy Miller Archives, as they are known, are housed at Cubberley Community Center, Room K-7, 4000 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto, CA 94306. The Association has an office in the Museum of American Heritage (the Williams House) at 351 Homer Avenue.

The Palo Alto Historical Association is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board meets the first Wednesday of each month (except August) at the Lucie Stern Community Center.

We present programs the first Sunday of the month October through December and February through May. The programs are free and open to the public. Held at the Lucie Stern Community Center, they feature a speaker or speakers on subjects of local interest. Our annual banquet, with a speaker, is held in early June.
