What’s happening at your
Perris Valley Historical Museum?

January 30th – we celebrated the Pioneer Family of the year,
The Carlos & Evelyn (Young) Pico Family.
Carlos and Evelyn’s four surviving children, Germaine, Melliss, Marie, and Norman attended with their families as well as the family of the late Gabriel Pico, Norman’s twin brother. They presented the museum with an album filled with their history and photos. The family members put up a storyboard presentation at the event and it will be on display at the museum during the month of February. The Historical Association was honored to highlight a family with ties to our Luiseno Indians. With proclamations presented by Mayor Daryl Busch and Riverside County Supervisor Marion Ashley’s office, the family and guests had a great time.

Coming up…

February 27th – For “Black History Month” we will have…
