How Would You Like To Be A Part of Beverly Hills History?

2014 is the 100th anniversary of our city and The Beverly Hills Historical Society is celebrating s by making YOU a part of Beverly Hills History!  Starting this fall watch for our centennial video project 100 YEARS, 100 STORIES.

100 Years, 100 Stories will create an oral and visual history of our city from the people who lived it.

This ongoing web series will tell the story of Beverly Hills through eyewitness interviews, memorabilia, vintage photographs, newsreels and your home movies.

The real beauty of this project is that our shared memories connect personally to each member of our community, since we all share a common history and experiences.

Please join us and tell your story.  Each two to three minute story will have a permanent place and we can all check throughout our centennial year to relive nostalgic tales from bygone days and revisit beloved landmarks from our vanished past.

Interview Request

We would welcome the opportunity to come and interview you either at our studio or your home to share your memories, photos, and perhaps even home movies of our city’s past. Or if you prefer you can take us on a “Magical History Tour” of your favorite haunts and let us discover Beverly Hills through your eyes.
