Please, pardon our dust! We will use the month of June to do some organizational work in our permanent collection storage area, and we need a little wiggle room to do this, so we’ll be spreading out into our museum space.
Because of all this, we will unfortunately NOT open the ARC during our June public open hours — this coming Sunday, June 3 and Sunday, June 17 (and happy early Father’s Day to all the dads!).
We wish we could install an observation area for our visitors!
You are cordially invited to attend the Culver City Historical Society’s Installation honoring the Society’s 14th president, Hope M. Parrish, and officers for 2018-2020 in the Crystal Dining Room of The Culver Hotel.
The event will take place on Wednesday evening, January 17, 2018 from 7:00-8:30 pm. The 2018-2020 officers will be:
- Hope M. Parrish, President
- Laura Stuart, Vice President, Development
- Ellen and Art Litman, co-Vice President, Museum
- Ryan Vincent, Vice President, Programs
- Fred Alexander, Secretary
- Carolyn Wispe Burns, Treasurer
Mayor Jeffrey Cooper will act as the installing officer and Rafia Cooper will be the evening’s Master of Ceremonies. Reservations are a must, so please download and complete the form found here, and your tickets will be held at the door.
Due to limited seating, reservations must be made by Friday, January 12, 2018. No tickets will be sold at the event. Tickets can also be purchased at the Culver City Historical Society Archives and Resource Center (ARC) on Sunday, January 7, 2018 between 1:00 PM -3:00 PM.
For more information, call the Society at (310) 253-6941 or email us.

In Search of Family History with Steven Rose
Multipurpose Room, Veterans Memorial Building, 7PM
Steven Rose (Culver City Chamber of Commerce)
If you have not already heard, Steven Rose is retiring as President/CEO of the Culver City Chamber of Commerce. What will he do with his free time?
At our next general meeting, Steve will explain his plans to dive deep into his family history, which is splintered among many generations and family trees and branches. All four lines of his family are believed to have roots in Germany, where family records have been kept for centuries. Steve will outline his plans for tracing his genealogy, how and what he has gathered so far, and share poignant anecdotes of his family’s journey over the last three centuries.
Many branches of his family immigrated to America in the 19th century, settling in northern or southern California as well on the east coast. They were involved in many aspects of the development of early California. Along the way, Steve has acquired many stories, fact and fiction, both here and in Germany, and looks forward to discovering more.
The public is invited to this free program. The entrance to the ARC is from the back parking lot.
The Archives will be open that evening for you to come and see the latest exhibits.
The branch of Steve’s maternal grandmother’s side of the family.
