In July 1982, HHS (formerly known as the Hercules Area Restoration and Preservation Committee, Inc.) was formed by former City council-members Lynn Fissell (formerly Judnich) and John Cadigan.  Incorporated in the State of California on September 19, 1985,  the Franchise Tax Board issued tax-exempt status under Section 23701d Revenue and Taxation Code on September 12, 1986.  The Internal Revenue Service issued tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) organization on December 19, 1986.

HHS is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation.  Its officers and members represent a cross-section of many community groups and professions.  Its main focus is the restoration and preservation of historical aspects of the City of Hercules.
