The Society was formed to ensure the preservation of Atwater’s Bloss Home, one of the town’s most prolific structures, and the history of its founders.

General meetings are held at the Bloss Museum at 7:00 p.m. on the third Monday of each month, except for December, July, and August, when no general membership meetings are held.

The annual meeting is the second Sunday of September at 1:00 p.m. This is a potluck on the grounds of the Bloss Museum.

For information on membership please contact us at (209) 357-6309 and leave a message or e-mail us at blosshome@gmail.com



Bloss Museum Open House


The Bloss Home Museum and beautiful lush grounds are open for free guided tours on the first Sunday of each month, with the exception of holidays and super bowl Sunday, between the hours of 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

School and special group tours can be arranged by contacting the society.

The Museum’s docents are very knowledgeable with the history of the Bloss home as well as the history of Atwater and are eager to share their knowledge with you and share this beautiful Atwater treasure with all those who are interested.

Other sites of interest are Bloss Memorial Library, built in 1925 in memory of George Thompson Bloss and now housing the Atwater Chamber of Commerce, Bloss Park, and the Atwater Women’s Club which was built in 1926 on land donated by Edna Thompson Bloss.
