Lakeside Historical Society
In 1972, the Lakeside Historical Society was formed 90 years after the El Cajon Valley Land Company constructed our boathouse at Lindo Lake, in the only natural fresh water lake in San Diego County, thus marking the beginning of our town. In those 90 years a lot of our history was not recorded, and was lost. The Society was formed with the express purpose of recording our passage through the years so that never again would a 90 year period contain so many blanks. Today, the Society is not only dedicated to recording our history but to the preservation of our old buildings in Heritage Park, which we will strive to establish. Many of us remember only as far back as our grandparents. The Society has pledged a better fate for Lakeside. Lakeside Historical Society's digital collection features local newspapers from the area, spanning from the 1920s to the 1950s.
