Lindo Lake Boathouse Designated Point of Historic Interest

President's Message
Dixie Lansdowne

  Good News! We have received word from the County of San Diego that the boathouse at Lindo Lake as been designated a California Historical Point of Interest. As you know there is a restoration project going on for the preservation of the structure. This designation will ensure future protection for it, thank you to County historian Lynne Newell Christianson and the County Department of Parks and Recreation.
  Another item of good news is that one of our Cedar Fire monuments panels has been requested by the Silverwood Preserve on Wild Cat Canyon Road. They will be installing it on their property soon.
  Our annual Chicken Pot Pie Dinner will be held Monday, March 23rd at 6:00 pm. Our guest speaker will be Pat Macha; he is an aviation archeologist. If you "dig" aircraft you'll want to be here. Please make reservations in advance as pies have to be ordered in advance. Call the Society office at 561-1886, tickets are $10.00.
  The L.H.S. will be preparing and serving lunch for the Woman's Club Annual Quilt Show March 20-21. The luncheon will be featuring soups, salads, sandwiches and great desserts, all for a reasonable price. As you know we have the best cooks in the county . . . yes we do! We are looking for a few volunteers to help prepare and serve lunch. Please call us at 619-561-1886.
  Our next big event will be our Western Days Breakfast on Saturday, April 15th starting at 7:00 am. We still offer breakfast at the unbelievable recession proof price of $5.00. Come early, have breakfast, stroll thru our craft show, then enjoy the annual Lakeside Parade. I hope you'll be able to come to these planned events. It's always great to visit and see one another.

  The County of San Diego, Department of Parks and Recreation submitted a nomination for the Lindo Lake Boat House as a California Point of Historic Interest. This nomination was approved by the State Historic Resources Commission on January 27, 2009. California Points of Historical Interest (Points) are buildings, sites, features, or events that are of local (city or county) significance and have anthropological, cultural, military, political, architectural, economic, scientific or technical, religious, experimental, or other historical value.
  The Lindo Lake Boathouse is one of the two earliest boathouses in San Diego County and it is the only one of its style of any age.  It is built in the Richardsonian Romanesque (or Romanesque Revival) style with an emphasis on arches and columns. Lindo Lake Boathouse was built in Lindo Lake to accompany the majestic Lakeside Inn. The Lindo Lake Boathouse is extremely important to the citizens of Lakeside. The Lindo Lake Boathouse is on the official Lakeside town logo.
  This is a very exciting development as it provides recognition to a unique and beloved structure. It also allows County Parks to apply for a variety of grants not available otherwise for the restoration of this 1887 boathouse.
