Coming Soon ... On Saturday, May 8th, 2021 We celebrate the City of Perris turning 110!! at the Santa Fe Depot downtown (A Covid Safe Event)
Sure, anyone can have a centennial celebration, but we can do them one better! We are celebrating 110 years of the City of Perris.
We will be setting up some of our collections of the centennial panels of its history and displays of some of the historic Families from its past. They well be outside, at a safe distance in our beautiful Perris Santa Fe Depot Gardens to share with our community. You well also be able to visit our Archives in the Bank of Perris building across the street to see this facility.
The displays will flow through all the years of our town. Beginning in pre-history with our local indigenous peoples, through the region's earliest European roots, gold mining, railroad history, farming and water, as well as our recreational pursuits, up to and including our community today. We will be using photographic panels, images of potato sacks from the potato growing era, some of our pioneer families' contributions and more, to bring our history to life, for this special day.
We are also opening our museum on Saturdays and Sundays only (10 am to 4 pm) and by appointment other days. Call Katie Keyes at (951) 956-9081 to make an appointment.
