Chatsworth Historical Society

Background
The CHS was formed in 1963 and  upholds a three point mission in addition to the commemoration of historical dates and events: 
1) to preserve and mark historic sites and landmarks of the Chatsworth area; 
2) to be an agency for the collection of photographs, artifacts,and archaeological items that represent the history of Chatsworth; 
3) to establish a museum to house and exhibit the collection. 

The first project was the saving and the moving of the Chatsworth Community Church, now called the Pioneer Church. 

The major project at the present time is the preservation and maintenance of the Homestead Acre, the name given to the 1.3 acre compound in Chatsworth Park South that contains the Hill-Palmer Cottage, the Chatsworth Museum, and the Frank H.Schepler, Jr. Memorial Library.  The majority of the site is given over to gardens with more than 200 rose bushes, including modern (hybrids) and historical roses, fruit trees and native California plants. 

Meetings
Meetings of the CHS are held monthly (except for June July & August) on the third Tuesday of the month at 7 P.M. at the Chatsworth Museum, located at 10385 Shadow Oak Drive, Chatsworth, CA 91311.  To receive a meeting notice send an email to chatsworthhistory@gmail.com and follow us on Facebook at Chatsworth Historical Society
