Keep Martinez’s Rich History Alive!



Who We Are

The Martinez Historical Society was created in 1973 to save this 1890 cottage and its site from becoming another parking lot in downtown Martinez.

Close The Flood Gates!!

With these recent storms and flood warnings in Martinez, it is timely to consider other flooding events that have occurred throughout the long history of our city and how they compare to today’s.
