A Taste of History Auction

Shasta Historical Society’s 8th annual A Taste of History fundraiser is slated for June 7-13, 2021, and this year it will be an Auction. Help us keep our Covered Wagon rolling by visiting our auction website and registering to bid!

Each year A Taste of History generates a a large portion of our annual operating budget and, especially with all that has happened this last year, we anticipate it will be difficult to survive at our current capacity without the generosity of our community.  We are a private non-profit whose mission is “To actively preserve, promote, and bring to life the history of Shasta County”. We have many plans for improving and creating more accessible educational programs and exhibits for the 2021-2022 fiscal year. Your support will help us make them happen and give back to our community. The Shasta Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization, and donation’s are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.  Bidder registration opens May 21st.
