The RIM OF THE WORLD HISTORICAL SOCIETY MUSEUM had its Season Opening June 5th, 2010 and enough thanks cannot be given to the fine members and volunteers of the society who made it happen! We should all be very proud of their time and effort that went into getting the museum up and running. Clap! Clap! And now, here we are in year two!
My family and I were lucky enough to go explore the Museum last year after it opened. I have to tell you, I was more than impressed. There is so much about Lake Arrowhead that I did not know, and thanks to these fine people, I now know where I can get answers to questions I have. And think about what this will mean for our young, local children. They will now get to go on "field trips" to the museum and learn about our great community, The San Bernardino County Mountains; how they were formed and by whom.
Upon a visit, you'll be amazed at all the old memorabilia the museum has on hand, much of which was donated by residents who've been here "forever" or passed down from their descendants. Experience a reproduction of Santa's Village. A "Movie Room" to check out some of the films made here. Blown up pictures of everything and everyone from a newly opened Snow Valley Ski Resort to the "Shanty Town" scene from Gone With The Wind. You will love it!
