When the East Contra Costa Historical Society (ECCHS) Museum opens its doors to the public on Saturday, April 5, visitors will be treated to some familiar pieces on display as well as a few new items. 

“This is our time for the community to come see what the museum has to offer,” said Mary Black, a member of the ECCHS board of directors. “There has been a lot going on at the museum thanks to the work of many volunteers. We’re looking forward to a wonderful season.”

The East Contra Costa Historical Society Museum is a place for anyone with a love for local history. Housed in one of the first homes built in the area in 1878, the museum, which was donated in 1984 by the Nail family, includes a parlor, a kitchen, bedrooms and an office. Outside is the toolshed, which in conjunction with the house offers visitors the chance to see how everyday life has both changed yet remained the same.
