John DeWitt Historic Museum and Library

dewitt

The Alpine Historical Society owns two historic houses. The John DeWitt Museum and Library is located in the Dr. Sophronia Nichols House. The Nichols House was built in 1896 at its current location. Dr. Nichols was Alpine's first medical doctor and held California Medical License #26. She was the sister of Carrie Foss, the matriarch of one of Alpine's pioneer families, and came to Alpine in 1888. The old Alpine Schoolhouse was added on to the rear of the original building making it a significant historical building. Dr. Nichols' carriage house is located to the rear of the museum.

The mission of the Alpine Historical Society is to encourage the community in an effort to retain structures and sites of historical significance, conserve natural resources and parkland, make available the visible evidence of the history of our community and develop historical programs which emphasize the contributions of the various cultural, ethnic, religious and social groups that comprise the Alpine area.
