The Fiddletown Preservation Society is an established local organization, active in preservation since 1964. An all-volunteer organization, it is dedicated to preserving, maintaining and restoring the historical buildings, records, and relics of Fiddletown.
FPS has a track record of obtaining grants and garnering donations. Between 2001-2008 the organization received $460,000 to preserve the exteriors of two Chinese-related buildings in Fiddletown (Restoration of Chinese Structures or ROCS). At that time, Fiddletown's Gold Rush Chinatown was recognized as vitally important to preservation of the culture and history of California.
FPS has won the California Governor's Award for each of the restoration projects it has attempted. This includes the 1988 Restoration of the Chew Kee Museum and the 2008 Restoration of Chinese Structures project.
