WAVHS HISTORY
60 years!!!

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 restore the 1915 Leona Valley Schoolhouse to be used for educational tours so that we can more effectively achieve our purpose. The Schoolhouse has been 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.
