About the Beneficiaries

El Paso de Robles Historical Society: A non-profit public benefit corporation whose purpose is to collect and preserve historic properties, objects, and papers of historical interest related to the Paso Robles area and its citizens, the Historical Society is a museum dedicated to Paso Robles history. It is well-curated and its passionate volunteers work tirelessly to catalogue and display pieces of Paso Robles history that fire the imagination and give a glimpse into the everyday and historically significant events that shaped our city through local stories, photos, news clippings and artifacts.
Pioneer Museum: The first building at the Pioneer Museum was opened in 1971 and the site continues to grow and thrive while providing a look at Paso Robles’ past that will amaze and delight the visitor. Displays in the museum include daily items relating to pioneer life, local family histories, pristine farm equipment and local modes of transportation through the years, the historic Jeanesville Pump and Geneseo Schoolhouse, and even a replica of Paso Robles first, and quite rustic, City Jail. The museum is constantly growing and improving, keeping the past alive for current and future generations.
Pioneer Day: Celebrating its 84th anniversary in 2014, Pioneer Day has been a cherished event for generations of Roblans and continues to attract visitors stand as a touchstone and rallying point for Paso Robles High School reunions and family reunions each year. The Pioneer Day Committee’s annual fundraising efforts go to restoring and preserving the stars of the Pioneer Day parade - the antique farm equipment, buggies, carriages and steam engines that make Paso Robles Pioneer Day a one-of-a-kind event.
