Our greatest resources are our docents, whose enthusiasm and experience are there to guide you in learning more about Encinitas, its surroundings, people, and history.
But our 1883 Schoolhouse also contains a significant collection of in-house research papers, newspaper articles, artifacts and exhibits which we will happily put at your disposal.
Call us, come in or email to find out more. You can also access a small cross-section of the 100-plus topics we keep on file by clicking on the following links:

The La Paloma
The History of Water In The San Dieguito Water District
The Old Log House by Ardell Huntgate Hartman
The House That Water Built by Lloyd O’Connell
