The Laguna Woods History Center (formerly Historical Society of Laguna Woods) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to “preserving today for tomorrow.” Our purpose is to collect, conserve and convey information, documentation and artifacts related to the history of Laguna Woods as a public service,  in perpetuity.  Eligible clubs are able to store club materials in the History Center’s climate-controlled archival space.

This website is intended to serve as your gateway to the community’s rich past and dynamic present.  It is Your Place in Local History!

Our office and archives are located next to the Laguna Woods Village Library near Clubhouse One. If you are a visitor to our community, please call ahead to schedule an appointment and Gate One access.
