WAVHS HISTORY

The West Antelope Valley Historical Society was formed in 1959 in Lake Hughes and incorporated in 1963 as a nonprofit corporation.  Our purpose is to record, preserve and disseminate to the public the history of Antelope Valley. We do this through meetings, a monthly newsletter and other publications. Our top priority at present is to convert the 1915 Leona Valley Schoolhouse into a museum so that we can more effectively achieve our purpose. The Schoolhouse just recently was designated a California Point of Historical Interest.  The Society is a non-profit Corporation with no paid employees. Money to operate the Society comes from membership fees, sales (books, caps, cups, T-shirts, stationery) and from tax deductible DONATIONS.
