The Saratoga Historical Foundation (SHF) was established in November, 1962 by Florence Russell Cunningham. It had its origins in the History Committee of the Foothill Club. Miss Cunningham, a school teacher, was vitally interested in local history and chaired the History Committee.
Her dream of a Museum for Saratoga became a reality in 1976. The American Bicentennial Celebration provided an opportunity to relocate and renovate a historic Saratoga structure for use as a Museum. The Swanee store and the Jarboe-McWilliams House were moved to their present sites and dedicated for use as a Museum in 1976.
As a volunteer for the Museum, you will learn to be a docent and give tours of the two historical structures!
