Founded in 2000, the Temecula Valley Historical Society is celebrating its 13 year
anniversary. The mission of the Society is to "identify, preserve and promote the historical
legacy of the Temecula Valley and to educate the public about its historical significance".

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 also
organizes local field trips as well as sending out volunteers to the community to educate
youngsters on the valley's historic legacy.

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
