How is it possible that The City of Temecula celebrates its 25th anniversary this December, yet is one of the oldest communities in California? At the Temecula Valley Museum, we offer historical walking tours that explain how we are both very young, and very, very old. Join us on Saturday, September 20, 2014 for a historical guided tour of Old Town Temecula and learn about the Luiseno Indians; the Mission period and the establishment of the Ranchos; about stagecoaches and railroads; even about when we received our very first traffic light.
Temecula has a long, colorful and interesting history. Experienced Tour Guide Dale Garcia will share stories and events from Temecula’s past. Guests will learn about Temecula business owner Joe Winkels who entertained Hollywood and sports legends at his Ramona Inn; about Temecula’s first bank robbery; and about a very famous author who called Temecula home. Join us for fun and unique experience and feel Temecula history come to life.
