Tucked behind the historic Reverend Henry A. McKinney House on University Avenue before it becomes La Mesa Boulevard…More are the museum and archives of the La Mesa Historical Society. The Palermo Building houses this material.
The society is a nonprofit, volunteer-backed organization that uses no state or city funds. Its board of directors meets monthly, with a general membership meeting quarterly. The society hosts special events three or four times a year, including a Historic Homes Tour.
Officers also can be reached at P.O. Box 882, La Mesa CA 91944.
