The Vista Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (IRS number 95-3752966).

A vital part of Vista’s heritage is the Vista Historical Society’s Museum at Rancho Minerva, where staff and docents preserve and honor the past while serving the present.

 

The Vista Historical Society is starting a new fundraiser. For $150, you can have three lines inscribed on a brick that will be placed on the Museum grounds, beginning with areas along the walkways. This is a chance to create a lasting memorial to a loved one or cherished pet, along with a donation to the Museum, for a relatively small cost. Please consider making this donation part of your giving plans. Click here to open and complete an interactive form. Once you have completed and saved the form, please submit it by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If you prefer, you can also print the form and submit it by U.S. Mail to Vista Historical Society and Museum, P.O. Box 1032, Vista, CA 92085-1032.
