Sunrise Senior Center kicks off the new year with a tour of the Fallbrook Heritage Center
Here’s a photo of the folks from the Sunrise Senior Center. The photo is from inside the Pittenger House, they also toured the main museum, and a good time was had by all. They are planning on returning, in the near future to see the Gem and Mineral display, the Ford Room, and the Barn.
The Pittenger House in March 2012 was designated by the DAR as historically significant. The house was built by Rev. William Pittenger. Rev. Pittenger was a minister at the Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1939, his church and two others combined to become the Methodist Church. Not only was he a Local Minster, but he was one of the first Civil War soldiers to receive the Medal of Honor from President Abraham Lincoln. The house is furnished and decorated with period pieces. From 2009 until 2014 The Live Oak Questers refurbished the interior of the house with the exception of the bathroom, which was refurbished by the Sleeping Indian Questers. The House is decorated to show seasonal changes and holidays, which is still supported by the Monserate Chapter of the NSDAR.
Please stop by any Thursday or Sunday from 1 pm – 4 pm to get a tour of the Pittenger House.
