Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

The Fountain Valley Historical Society was formed to preserve the old and keep in touch with the new when old-timers of Fountain Valley got together at the 10th anniversary celebration of the city's incorporation.

Today, the members care for Heritage Park, home to the Fountain Valley Historical Society and several saved historic structures from around the town.  The Historical Society provides archive space at Heritage Park for old documents, memorabilia, photographs and files that preserve the town's history.

Fountain Valley was 'born' in 1896 when Roch and Magdelena Courreges moved to the bluff at Talbert and Newland and established a ranch and farm there.   The oldest structure still standing in FV is the Courreges Ranch Tank House, which was built in 1897.   The Historical Society is raising funds to move that tank house over to Heritage Park for preservation.
