Come Visit Us
Come for the day or a longer stay! We are in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country just 15 miles north of Healdsburg. The Gould-Shaw House Museum and History Center are part of the Cultural Corridor of shops, restaurants, art galleries and B&Bs located in downtown Cloverdale.
Just next door is the Center for Performing Arts, a beautiful 99-seat theatre featuring some of the finest live theatre productions in Sonoma County. The History Center and Museum are handicapped accessible with free on-street parking and a free parking lot at the rear of the buildings.
Founded in 1968, the Cloverdale Historical Society is a cultural, non-profit organization 501 (C) (3) Corporation Tax I.D. #68-0047998 with a mission to collect, conserve and celebrate the unique history of the Cloverdale area. It is supported by dedicated and talented volunteers, and a growing membership.
The Society is funded by memberships, donations, and a small endowment created by a local resident along with a variety of fundraising activities.
