The La Mesa Historical Society has a new exhibit at its McKinney House Museum to celebrate the City’s Centennial year.
Being a Child 100 Years Ago is on display the second and fourth Saturdays of the month, from 1-4 p.m.
There is a new room display showcasing the history of old time toys and games from tiddlywinks to spinning tops, tin wind up toys, kaleidoscope, checkers, jacks, marbles and many more to tantalize your memory and illustrate child’s play long ago. All of these items come from the collections of the Society and are displayed in a classroom setting with old photos of students from the Allison School and La Mesa Grammar School between 1910 and 1929.
Bring the whole family for a history lesson. There is no charge for the tour, though donations are appreciated.
