The Temecula Valley Historical Society was founded in 2001.
Projects have included the placement of plaques and markers on historic buildings and sites in Old Town Temecula, the restoration of the Louis Wolf Tomb, the restoration of a stagecoach, and the production of a DVD about the local history. The Society provides self-guided walking tour maps of Old Town Temecula to local shopkeepers for public distribution.
Monthly meetings are held at the Little Temecula History Center which include speaker presentations on the local history of Temecula Valley. The Society organizes local field trips and has a group of actors who are available to perform to local groups depicting historical people of the area.
We invite you to browse around our web site. Be sure to check out the local history section and the gossip collection which contains excerpts from the Lake Elsinore Valley Press that was published from 1910 - 1926. Memberships in the Temecula Valley Historical Society are available at levels affordable to individuals and families as well as corporate sponsorship.
The Temecula Valley Historical Society is a nonprofit organization under Internal Revenue Code, Section 501(c)3.
