The Northeast Oakland Historical Society was organized in 1971 by a group of local citizens with a desire to preserve an awareness of this area's history and its artifacts. The society maintains the museum, which is staffed by volunteers. Twice a year, the Northeast Oakland Historical Society hots an informal social gathering which features a speaker on topics of historical interest.

These gatherings are fun as well as informative and the public is welcome. Membership to the society is open to everyone.
