The Chatsworth Historical Society (CHS) is located on the Homestead Acre, 10385 Shadow Oak Drive,
in Chatsworth Park South at the west end of Devonshire Street in the beautiful San Fernando Valley.

Los Angeles City Department of Recreation and Parks
with the Chatsworth Historical Society acting as conservator of the property.
The CHS was formed in 1963 and upholds a three point mission in addition
to the commemoration of historical dates and events:
- to preserve and mark historic sites and landmarks of the Chatsworth area.
- to be an agency for the collection of photographs, artifacts, and archaeological items that represent the history of Chatsworth.
- to establish a museum to house and exhibit the collection.
