Fallbrook’s Railroad Heritage Park Update
If you think it’s been a long time coming, get ready! The Fallbrook Railroad Heritage Park has finally broken ground, with grading already started in anticipation of the placement of an authentic caboose in downtown Fallbrook at the corner of Main and Elder. Tracks are scheduled for delivery before the end of April, and expect great fanfare with the arrival of the caboose around mid-May.
It’s not too late to lend support to this project, as phase I, placement of the caboose, is still $10,000 under-funded.
Donations can be made to:
Fallbrook Village Association @ FVA, P.O. Box 2438, Fallbrook, CA 92088
in person @ 431 S. Main Ave
FHS MISSION STATEMENT
The Fallbrook Historical Society’s mission is to bring History to Life by educating the community and others about Fallbrook’s rich heritage.
The Fallbrook Historical Society (FHS) received its Charter, approval of exemption as a Non-Profit Corporation and Articles of Incorporation on August 9, 1976. The first general meeting of the FHS was called to order by George Kelsey in the Fallbrook High School Cafeteria on April 4, 1977. The current location of the museum and Pittenger House, were purchased in 1981. Construction of the “Barn” began on June 3, 2006, culminating with the “Barn” being formally dedicated and named the Donald J. Rivers Interpretive Center on October 9, 2011.
