The Whittier Historical Society owns and operates the Whittier Museum and provides tours of the Historic Bailey House. Our mission is to collect, preserve, and display materials of historical significance to the greater Whittier area. We also produce programs and special exhibits of interest to the Whittier community. The Whittier Museum and Bailey House are open to the public with free admission. We hope you will visit soon!
