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.
Nominations are now open for 2024 selections for the Vista Hall of Fame, which is sponsored by the Vista Historical Society.
The Hall of Fame celebrates Vista’s history by highlighting individual accomplishments in support of Vista.
A minimum of two members will be elected to the Hall of Fame each year. One of these members will be from the Regular division and one from the Early Residents division.
The Regular division nominee can be living or dead and must meet the first three criteria listed below. The Early Resident division nominee must also meet the first three criteria and must also meet the fourth criteria that he or she must have been dead for 20 years or more. The reason for the difference in the divisions is to ensure that early residents who made significant contributions to Vista are remembered.
The criteria for election to the hall of fame are as follows:
