Masks and social distancing will be required of all visitors to the museum and gift shop. We may also have to limit your time in the building if our crowd size gets too large. Sanitation procedures are in place.
The History Center Archives will be available to the public on Wednesdays only, between 10:00 am to 1:00 pm; however, we are asking that people call (619) 561-1881 the day prior to their planned visit to ensure we will have room for them.
If you drop by without checking ahead we cannot guarantee entry. Our archives can get very crowded and we must limit our visitors for the safety and well being of our volunteers.

New to Lakeside? Welcome!
Lakeside, CA became a town site in 1886 as a tourist destination with the building of the Lakeside Inn that advertised boating, hunting, fishing and just plain old relaxing. From it’s flashy beginning to the beautiful town it is today, Lakeside was, and will continue to be, “A Friendly Place to Live.”
The Lakeside Historical Society was founded in 1972 and is dedicated to the preservation and education of Lakeside’s diverse history. We are located on the corner of Maine Ave. and Parkside St. in the lovingly restored 19th century Olde Community Church of Lakeside.
Please take the time to leisurely browse through our ever growing online collection of histories and rare images of this beautiful town. When you come to town, stop by and take a tour of the Olde Community Church, browse our store.
Join our society!
