Our mission is to nurture an interest and appreciation of our local history, its land and its people by collecting and preserving its archaeological, cultural, and historic artifacts.


Living well is a lifetime adventure. Learning the rich history of where one lives is one of the joys. To interact with the artifacts and people who made Palos Verdes history, and those who will preserve it for the future, join us as we celebrate our special heritage.

Upcoming Events

"Wine, Cheese, Chocolate and Bones" - an informative talk by Archaeologist and Historical Society Curator Joe Cocke will be held at the Palos Verdes Interpretive Center on May 19, 2016. For details, please see the Events page.
