The Lemon Grove Historical Society (LGHS) is Lemon Grove’s leading cultural institution. Founded in 1978, the Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Membership is open to individuals, families, businesses and organizations.
LGHS has an important track record in historic preservation, in promoting and displaying the work of regional artists, and in providing insight into huge world events and their impact on the home town.
LGHS saved the City’s first church, the 1897 First Congregational Church of Lemon Grove (also known as the “Atherton Chapel”) and oversaw its adaptive reuse as the Parsonage Museum of Lemon Grove. This Folk Victorian charmer offers two floors of beautiful exhibits related to the history of the community. LGHS received a 2001 Governor’s Historic Preservation Award for the rehabilitation of the building. The Society further saved the 1928 H. Lee House, a handsome Tudor Revival mansion, and oversaw its adaptive reuse as the City’s cultural center. It is a popular site for social rentals.
Located in Civic Center Park, in the heart of Lemon Grove, the Parsonage Museum and the H. Lee House Cultural Center are owned by the City of Lemon Grove and operated by the Lemon Grove Historical Society.

As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, let us take time to reflect upon the case of Roberto Alvarez vs. the Board of Trustees of the Lemon Grove School District. This historic case is actually the first successful school desegregation court decision in the United States dating to the 1930’s.
The landmark ruling illustrates the power of the Hispanic community as it took legal action and won the case, establishing the rights of their children to equal educational facilities.
The song “Lemon Grove” tells the story of a community determined to end segregated schools for their children.
About the "Olive St. 13" bottles...(just read the story in the Adelante)
Shouldn't that project have had an archaeological monitor present to record, collect, and curate the items found in the "feature?" I wonder Why this wasnt the case? Our company has worked at other Lemon Grove projects...so such monitoring (of the heavy equipment excavation) Has been done in L.G.
There should be manufacturer date Codes on the base of many of those bottles (if not all). ?? Let me know if you want any assistance in IDing their age...but looks like 1915-1930 is about right.
The small bottle in front, left held shoe polish (in Adelante photo). The aqua jar with the light bulb set in it held medicinal powder or tablets (but wouldnt have a date code on the base). Looks like 5 ketchup. The Pluto Water is the biggest I've ever seen! Some of these bottles had "Americas Physic" written around the shoulder.
Meeting Helen tomorrow to finalize plans for the New Exhibit MILLER DAIRY. We will be ready for Bonfire Night Dec. 1. See you in the Parsonage Museum.
