Help Us Preserve History
Join the Santa Ana Historical Preservation Society. For a small contribution, you can support the Dr. Howe-Waffle House, the new Santa Ana Fire Museum, and all the other historical and preservation activities we do.
As a member you receive special member-only discounts on Open House tickets at both of our museums (the 1889 Dr. Willella Howe-Waffle House and Medical Museum and our new Santa Ana Fire Museum,) as well as invitations and discounts to exciting events throughout the year, including our award-winning Cemetery Tour. And as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, your membership dollars are tax deductible!
With an over 40-years legacy of historic preservation, the Society remains an all-volunteer, grassroots organization with no paid staff, and a reputation as an active, community-preservation oriented group. This is not your grandmother's historical society! We take historic preservation very seriously and are part of an exclusive, and increasingly rare, group of historical organizations. This is a distinction our members can take pride in.
Please join us today, or renew your membership at your current, or higher, level. And, please, give as generously as you can.
Update to the Civil War Veterans' Gravesites
The legacy of America's Civil War played a major role in the birth of Orange County. We support a great research effort to document the grave sites of Civil War veterans in our county. You can even use Google Earth to help you locate these locations. Click here to see more.

If you would like to order any of them, visit our Store link for the books available online and for a copy of our latest mail-in book order form.

Old Society Newsletters Posted
It's fun to go through some of our newsletters and see what the Society was doing during the 1980s and 90s (and also who was preserving what home and received various awards). We've posted most of the issues (including our first 4) on this site. Some files are large (6 to 11 MB in size), but they're all easily viewable as PDF files.

This Place Matters! -- The Dr. Howe-Waffle House has been included in a national online program to highlight "places that matter." Thanks to Nicholas Ball for being our spokesmodel.
