Welcome To The Cloverdale Historical Society
The Museum is located in a Gothic Revival Victorian known as The Gould-Shaw House. One of the oldest documented dwellings in Cloverdale, its façade appears today much as it did in the 1870s.
The house is a rare example of Sonoma County Gothic Revival Cottage, an architectural style of the Victorian Era. Its significance was recognized as early as 1877 in the Atlas of Sonoma County which described it as one of the finest residences in Cloverdale.
The Cloverdale History Center and Historic Gould-Shaw House showcase important local exhibits and archives and an extensive collection of artifacts and ephemera of Cloverdale’s natural and human history. The History Center was built in 2010 and currently houses Exhibit Halls, a Research Library, and an Accession Office.
