The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of the Coachella Valley Historical Society, Inc. is to preserve, interpret, and share the artifacts that create a dialogue about the evolving history of the Coachella Valley.
The Coachella Valley Historical Society, Inc. is dedicated to sharing the history of the Valley with tourists, locals, and schoolchildren through tours, programs, and research. The campus includes the main museum which is housed in the historic Smiley-Tyler house, an original adobe home. We also have a restored 1909 schoolhouse which gives students an opportunity to see what attending school was like for the early pioneer children of the area. The museum is dedicated to the community and our volunteers are key to the continued success of the ability of the museum to continue to do this.
