The Historical Society of Pomona Valley, Inc. was organized on March 2, 1916 in the committee room of the Pomona Public Library with a charter membership of 28. The organization came as a result of the vision and inspiration of Mrs. J.W. Wilkinson, who recognized the importance of the history connected with the lives of the early settlers of this valley and the distressing lack of recorded data concerning these people. Miss Sarah Jacobus, the Librarian, was the driving force behind the creation of the Society.
The Society set about collecting and preserving these important documents and photos. The descendents of the early California Settlers were very cooperative and the Society gathered a vast collection of manuscripts, documents, papers, maps, books, and photos which were placed in the Pomona Public Library under the protection of the Librarian who was also the Curator of the Society. The materials were made available for reference. Today, these materials are still available in the Special Collections section.
