New hours of operation also announced
September 7, 2011 (La Mesa) –To get ready for the La Mesa City 100th anniversary year, the La Mesa Historical Society is raising matching funds for building maintenance and beautification. The Society is also changing the hours the museum will be available for tours.
The Society’s McKinney House Museum at 8369 University Ave.., La Mesa is in need of some recurring preservation/maintenance and beautification. Recently one of the Historical Society members offered matching funds to the Society for painting the City Registered historic building exterior, including the repair of building trim such as windows and crown molding. These funds are being donated in honor of Gordon Jones for all the work he has done for the City and the Historical Society.
Now the Historical Society is in the midst of raising $5,500 to match the donated funds. If anyone is interested in helping with a tax-deductible donation please send funds to the La Mesa Historical Society, P.O. Box 882, La Mesa, CA
Also, the Society is changing the days the McKinney House Museum will be open. This will give the public more opportunities to tour the museum. Starting on Saturday, October 8 the museum will be open on the second and fourth Saturdays from 1-4 PM. The archives and research building will be open every Saturday from 1-4 PM (barring holidays and special events
