About Us

The Yankee Hill Historical Society was founded in 2002 to preserve the Messilla Valley School house and preserve the history of the Yankee Hill area. That same year the society moved the 1856 Messilla Valley School from Pentz to Concow Road in Yankee Hill, Butte County, Ca where it was restored and now serves as a community center and our headquarters. We also support this virtual museum to digitally preserve the area’s history. See the CALENDAR for meeting dates and events.
