The Society's Monthly Program Schedule
The Society's  next presentation will be on September 26 at 6:00 p.m.

Our presentations are held indoors at the Little Temecula History Center, which is the "red barn" next to Kohl's, one block south of Temecula Parkway at the intersection of Margarita. They are free and open to the public.
Pat Jennings , a long-time resident of Murrieta and a founding member of the Murrieta Valley Historical Society, will give a presentation about the Yoder family who dry farmed in the Temecula area during the first half of the 1900s.

  Jennings, an avid historian and firefighter, collected many of the artifacts in the Murrieta Valley Historical Society's museum and was well-acquainted with many of the early families of the area.

  The Yoders farmed "Yoder Camp" which is where the Maurice Car'rie Winery is today. The Yoder story is one of many captivating tales of residents of our valley.
