Who first settled Walnut Creek?
What is the oldest commercial building in downtown?
Who was Walnut Creek’s first mayor?
Looking for answers to questions like these — and preserving and sharing the answers — is the mission of the Walnut Creek Historical Society.
The Historical Society invites the community to use this website to learn more about our local heritage… to explore our history at Shadelands Ranch Museum and through our tours and educational programs… and to support our work to preserve and interpret our local history.
