Hayward Area Historical Society & Museums



The Hayward Area Historical Society operates a museum in downtown Hayward with permanent and temporary exhibition. The facility also contains a research library and archives. In addition, the Historical Society operates the McConaghy House, a 12 room Victorian mansion where it conducts house tours and educational programs. We are in the process of restoring a second historic house that will be open to the public within the next year or two.

Mission: The Hayward Area Historical Society joins with people of all ages in the celebration of the diverse heritage of our community. Through educational programs, interpretive exhibitions and the preservation of historic sites and artifacts, the Historical Society promotes an understanding about our shared history and the challenges of our future.
