Welcome to Florin Historical Society

Welcome to Florin Historical Society

In the early 1980's, several concerned residents met to discuss the future of Florin in the attempt to save its landmarks that were being destroyed by land developers.

The Florin Historical Society was formed to preserve the history of Florin and the goal of the Society is to create and maintain a museum to commemorate Florin's heritage.

The lease was signed on March 17, 2008 for the old 'Promise Lodge' building. After a long and difficult renovation, the first meeting was held on Thursday, October 13, 2009 at 7145 McComber Street, the address of the Florin Historical Society and Museum.


Florin, California: Once called
"The Strawberry Capitol of the World."

In 1915, The Florin Redmen Lodge had three annual events, the Strawberry Ball, the Tokay Ball, and the Children's Christmas Party. The origin of the strawberry celebrations goes back to the late1800's.

The Society chose to mark Florin's heritage with a Strawberry Picnic which is held on the 2nd Saturday in June and is now called the Strawberry Festival. Come join us for the scholarship presentation, raffle drawing and the highlight of the Strawberry Festival, "Strawberries & Ice Cream."
