The Yankee Hill Historical Society is located in Yankee Hill, Butte County, Northern California. We focus on the history along the highway 70 corridor from Pentz to Pulga. This includes Cherokee, Concow Valley, Big Bend, Flea Valley, Messilla Valley, Oregon City, Pentz, Pulga and Yankee Hill.
On this virtual museum site we encourage you to visit our Bookstore, Museum and Theater for books, displays, videos and other presentations on the area’s history. The Newsletter section offers articles written for the newsletters based on the research housed in our Archives.
