Create a Legacy

The Carmel Valley Historical Society invites you to join its Tile Campaign in support of its mission to “preserve and promote the unique history and heritage of Carmel Valley for current and future generations.” Your tax deductible tile will create a durable, lasting legacy for friends, family, or business associates to enjoy when they visit the History Center. It will also help ensure the Center’s continuation as an educational and research facility engaged in preserving and exhibiting the unique artifacts and memorabilia of Carmel Valley.

The museum, located on the East side of the Community Park in Carmel Valley, exhibits hundreds of artifacts and memorabilia that have been collected over many years. It is an attraction for visitors and residents, an educational experience for all, and a source of pride for our community.

The tiles are engraved using state of the art laser technology. Their strength and durability will create a lasting impression! You’ll be able to bring your children, grandchildren and friends to see your personalized tile for years to come. Your commitment to preserving our history is a legacy that will live on.
