Ways & Means Chair Scott Atkins discussed the Heritage Center location where visitors can tour the Pittenger House. 
The Heritage Center, located at Rocky Crest and Hill, includes the main museum building, Pittenger House and The Barn. The museum has had recent upgrades, contains the Ford automobile room, provides interpretive areas, and a gem collection. William Pittenger, who built his home in Fallbrook, received the Civil War Medal of Honor, became minister and became active in developing our town.  The Barn highlights Fallbrook’s agricultural history and will be renovated soon. The Society has recently acquired the Reche School House and provides it for event rental. Both the Barn and Ford Room are also available for rental. 


The Historical Society also owns The Caboose downtown at Elder and Main.

Given the current COVID situation, Mr. Atkins appreciated the recent grants provided by County Supervisor Jim Desmond along with the help of the previous Supervisor Bill Horn. The grants cover specific costs and help with maintenance costs. COVID grants have helped with expenses but the Historical Society has been using up their reserves.  Donations are appreciated, and fundraisers have been done, prior to COVID. 


Vice President / Webmaster & Docent Coordinator Jeff Duhachek discussed the updated web site.

The Fallbrook Historical Society website contains a Fallbrook Timeline, Featured Articles, Pioneers of the Year and Vintage Business of the Year.  It features Member Information, Board of Directors and Volunteer Opportunities. VP Duhachek encouraged everyone to explore the Fallbrook Historical Society website, become a member and visit the society in the future.
