Historical society's Open House offers a glimpse into the past

FALLBROOK – Did you know Fallbrook was the home of one of the first recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor? Did you know its current and former residents include singer-songwriter Rita Coolidge, baseball legend Duke Snider and famed movie director Frank Capra? Learn even more at the Fallbrook Historical Society’s annual Open House Saturday, June 11, from 2 to 6 p.m.

All buildings at the Heritage Center, 260 Rocky Crest Road, will be open for guided tours, including the Main Museum, Pittenger House, Gem and Mineral Room, and the Donald J. Rivers Interpretive Center, also known as “The Barn.”

“Our open house is an excellent opportunity for local residents and visitors to find out more about our town’s rich legacy,” said FHS President Roy Moosa. “The afternoon event will have something for everyone – crafts for kids, music, food and a silent auction. We are hoping for a good turnout to share Fallbrook’s amazing history.”

The event is free of charge and everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, contact the historical society office at 760-723-4125 or
