Founded in 2000, the Temecula Valley Historical Society is celebrating its 10 year anniversary. The mission of the Society is to "identify, preserve and promote the historical legacy of the Temecula Valley and to educate the public about its historical significance".
Projects have included the placement of plaques and markers on historic buildings and sites in Old Town Temecula, the restoration of the Louis Wolf Tomb, the restoration of a stagecoach and the production of a DVD about the local history. The Society provides self guided walking tour maps of Old Town Temecula to local shopkeepers for public distribution. Monthly meetings are held at the Little Temecula History Center which include speaker presentations on the local history of Temecula Valley. The Society also organizes local field trips as well as sending out volunteers to the community to educate youngsters on the valley's historic legacy.
The Society holds regular meetings and produced it's own Historical DVD "Early Boom Town Temecula" which may be purchased for a small donation.
