The Healdsburg Historical Society Museum

Early last Sunday morning, I pulled out my sketchbook and sat on a curb across the street from the Healdsburg Museum and started drawing. The air was cool and crisp, but the sun shinning on my hat and jacket kept me warm.

The building was built over 100 years ago in 1910 and originally housed the Healdsburg Library. The Healdsburg Historical Society moved into the building in 1976 and has occupied it ever since.

The bells of the nearby Catholic Church broke the morning silence, calling its followers to Mass. People anxious to get to church parallel parked all around me and eventually blocked my view of the lower portion of the museum. Thankfully, I drew the base first, so I was still able to finish my drawing.

  1. When I was a little girl, I spent summers in Healdsburg. The library was my favorite place. This brought back so many memories. I went to a one room school in the Alexander Valley in the 3rd grade way back in 1944!

  2. Oh, I’m glad this drawing brought back such pleasant memories! Your one room school sounds like it might also be interesting to draw too. Is it still there in Alexander Valley?
