The Pittsburg Historical Society was established in 1961 and is a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit organization. Above is a photo of the original museum building that was located on Civic Avenue. The building was a recreation hall donated to the museum by the Standard Oil Company in 1963 and came from the old Los Medanos pumping station.
