#11 of 19 in Museums in Sonoma County
The Healdsburg Museum was founded in 1976 by a group of local citizens led by retired City Clerk, Edwin Langhart, to house the historical collections donated to the City starting in the 1950s. Until 1989 the Museum occupied small, temporary quarters. A successful fundraising drive in 1987-88 raised over half a million dollars to restore and refurbish the Healdsburg Carnegie Library building dating from 1910 as a permanent home for the Museum. This building, a beloved local landmark, is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Healdsburg Museum is owned by the City of Healdsburg but is managed, and operated by the volunteers of the Healdsburg Museum and Historical Society in concert with full-time and part-time staff members.

  • Interesting to check out. Small museum can be seen in about 30 min. We stopped at a nearby park to have a picnic.
