April Events Canceled
Due to the Coronavirus, the Lakeside Historical Society Board members have decided the following events will be canceled:
- April 2nd Museum Meeting
- April 10th Board Meeting
- April 25th Western Days Breakfast
Closures of the History Center, Gift Shop, and Church will continue for the time being. Thank you for your understanding.
So, in the meantime, sit back, find a way to relax, finish those household chores and projects that have been on pause for so long (or don’t), stay safe and healthy, and keep your wits about you. Life gets strange sometimes, but we can handle it. And if you need anything, we are all just an email or a phone call away.

You have probably heard that we lost our First Lady of Lakeside, Edna Kouns, earlier in February. The family hosted a Celebration of Life Saturday, February 29th in El Monte Park. Sadly, we have lost a number of our wonderful ladies in past weeks.

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.
