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!
