Adelaida Historical Foundation

Adelaida Historical FoundationThe Adelaida School is the only viable public structure that remains from the early thriving community of Adelaida, where schools, a general store, a post office and dance halls provided the supporting social and civic structure for homesteaders who farmed and mined in these bucolic hills.

Horses and riders rested and watered at this way station as they moved their cargo from the coast to missions and towns. Our goal is to restore the school structure not only to remind us of that past and to serve as a repository for historical information and artifacts, but also so that it may continue to be a local community center where the heart and spirit of ‘the Adelaida’ will endure.
