Welcome to the Half Moon Bay History Association Website
Our group was established in 2006 with the goal of preserving and celebrating the history of the Coastside. We hold quarterly speaker events on a variety of historic topics, provide an education program to local third-grade schools, and serve as a resource for those with questions about or an interest in the history of this unique region. Thanks to a partnership with the City of Half Moon Bay, we have opened a museum in the historic jail in downtown Half Moon Bay. We are also working on a project to establish a larger Coastside History Museum in the Johnston Barn building behind the jail. Volunteers and donations to help with our projects are more than welcome!
