You can tell the history of California through state parks. From the very beginning with Native Americans, up until modern times, California has grown and changed. Each park has a story to tell that fits into the greater history of the Golden State, and there is so much to learn from these places.
The story of our California is woven into the fabric of our 47 state historic parks. They are destinations for students and teach us about Californian’s history and statehood. These state parks bring our complex history and important figures from our past to life.
While some of these parks are closed due to coronavirus (COVID-19), we hope you can still enjoy them virtually through the resources we have provided. Explore here!
