What do I love about PVHA? As a lifelong resident of Watsonville, I thought I knew my community quite well, but every time I'm at PVHA there's something new. I’ve learned so much about preserving our past. Plus I have acquired a number of new friends and reconnected with old friends too.
Archive & Technology
Do you love history or are computer savvy? Then the Archive is for you. Come and explore our historic photos, written texts, oral histories, maps and much more.
How about volunteering in our historic house and working with our clothing and accessories? Our House Committee members would love to have you come and join them on Wednesdays and bring your lunch!
Are you a gardener and love being in the outdoors? Then our beautiful gardens are the magical place to be. Join our garden volunteers in maintaining our luscious surroundings
