With a rich history filled with stories of the hardiest of settlers to the Hollywood elite, the Town of Apple Valley Historical Advisory Committee works hard to research, document and preserve our history. Formed on March 13, 1990, the Committee has eight members appointed by the Town Council. Members of the Town Council each appoint one person, plus three at-large members, which include representatives of the Mohahve Historical Society and the Victor Valley Museum.
The Historical Advisory Committee meets on the third Thursday of alternate months at 2:00 p.m. at Town Hall. Meetings are open to the public.
