East Contra Costa Historical Society and Museum 

3890 Sellers Ave, Brentwood, CA 94513


What a great place to learn a bit about local history. This is a great place to visit with the whole family!  The school house experience is awesome! Great staff very knowledgeable about the East Contra Costa county. The owners are a wife and husband duo and the wife was sharing about the home inside and the husband shared about life outside on the farm and the garage. Neat to see such dedication! There are docent led tours which come highly recommended. It is nice not only to really see the history at the museum but to also hear about the truly interesting historical facts from people who know what they are talking about. It is easy to pass by so make sure to drive slowly so you don’t miss it! 


The early history of this place is absolutely incredible. The historical society does a great job on the upkeep of everything. The maintenance of this museum is just phenomenal, it’s like traveling back through time looking at the parlor where they have an old piano, cameras used in that time, and even a telephone. They also have the bedrooms with many historical artifacts like children's toys, mens and womens clothing, and even a wooden wheelchair. The best room would have to be the office. It has so much historical value from the phonograph, to the records, and even the typewriter, this museum really gives an amazing insight as to how life was back in that era.

Super cool hole in the wall, some may live here their whole life and never know it’s here. This museum is the best kept secret in the east county, great place to visit. The area is very well kept and just a great overall experience for either the whole family or just someone who is interested in the rich history and historical novelties one’s hometown has to offer.
