Welcome to The La Mesa Historical Society
TO BETTER SERVE YOU: LMHS IS CONSTRUCTING AN ENTIRELY NEW WEB SITE WHICH WE EXPECT TO HAVE ON LINE SOON. PLEASE CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY.
From its origins as a place where cattle and sheep used to graze in the late 1800s to its period as a silent-movie mecca in the early 1900s, La Mesa has a rich and colorful past. The La Mesa Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the community's heritage for future generations. You could say it's "where the past meets the present."
Working out of the Rev. Henry A. McKinney House Museum and Archives, a 1908-built historical landmark, the La Mesa Historical Society is reaching out to the community through a number of avenues - educational historical roundtables led by notable historians, walking tours to hosting and participating in special events including our Annual Historic Home Tour. Take a walk through history with us - we look forward to seeing you soon.
Remembering the past while preserving the present.
Come. Explore. Discover. Investigate.
