Be a part of history at the Antioch Historical Society Museum.
Early sources of historical information and preservation were credited to the Native Sons and Daughters of the Golden West and Mrs. Alice Webster. She was a former Postmistress and City Treasurer who served as the very first President of the Antioch Historical Society.
The Society started and then lapsed into silence several times until 1954 when Jack Dempsey became President.
In 1974, Eva Lozano, then President of the Woman’s Club of Antioch, met with other members of the Woman’s Club and decided to reorganize the Society and put life back into it. Fortunately one of the members’ located box of records in a basement and the society was once again on the move.
The official date listed on the charter for the “Reorganization of the Antioch Historical Society” was April 24, 1975. The first meeting was held at Marchetti’s Restaurant. The Society met at various locations in the community, often holding membership dinners at the Woman’s Club. They obtained various storage sites for the collection of artifacts; and searched for a museum location. On April 1, 1979, founding member, Mayor Verne Roberts orchestrated the granting of the old Carnegie Library at 6th and “F” Streets to the society for their first museum.
The museum quickly filled to capacity with artifacts. In 1994 amidst rumors of the Riverview Fire Protection District consolidation with Contra Costa Fire, the Society submitted letters requesting consideration for the old Riverview Union High School, should it be abandoned by the Fire Protection District.
In 1997, having learned of a pending auction of the building, efforts were launched to stop the auction and petition the Board of Supervisors of the County to sell the building to the Antioch Historical Society. Following the successful presentation of a real estate contract with much political pressure, the Board of Supervisors agreed to sell the building to the Society. In September of 1999 the Society moved all their belongings into the Riverview Union High School and began renovation and restoration of the building. Two and a half years later the Society was able to complete the purchase, paying in full the five year option to purchase, due much to the support and contributions. The good things that we enjoy today often come from those who took a stand in the past. The museum certainly deserves a visit of appreciation.
On Stage in Antioch
In 1928, El Campanil Theatre opened its doors to the City of Antioch and the Diablo Valley. At the time it was known as “the most pretentious building in Contra Costa County.”
It was built, owned and operated by Ferdinand Stamm and Ralph Beede. El Campanil (the tower of bells) is Spanish in both name and architecture. As with many theatres of the era, El Campanil originally offered an audience chamber of approximately 1,100 seats. Folklore abounds about the famous celebrities who performed there, and who left their autographs on the dressing room walls. El Campanil was also a single screen cinema and at the time considered a “state-of-the-art” projection capability.
Located in the heart of downtown Antioch, along the waterfront and in what is now known as the Rivertown Business District, El Campanil was owned and operated by the Stamm family for 75 Years, or until 2003. In 2001, a small group of local citizens, including representatives of the Business District Association, approached the City of Antioch with their plan to find a way to acquire and restore El Campanil. Their business plan outlined the best strategies for moving the project forward becoming a charitable, non-profit organization. In early 2003 the Foundation received a grant to acquire the Theatre. They began converting the building to a community performing arts venue. The Theatre presents a wide variety of entertainment including Foreign and Classic Films, Live Theatre, Concerts, Symphony, Ballet, Comedy and is host to numerous local dance and community based organizations.
