 Please join the Lemon Grove Historical Society on Saturday, July 16, 2022  from 11am to 2pm. We will celebrate the arrival, 20 years ago, of the H. Lee House in the heart of our town at the Treganza Heritage Park. “Lady Lee” immediately embarked on a new life as Lemon Grove’s cultural center, becoming the site of countless social events (weddings, birthdays, memorials, baby showers and more).  Since the day she arrived she began her new life as the heartbeat of our town. 
 
She is a beautiful old lady and much-loved by the community.  We will have cake and beverages and a special display of the Lee House artifacts from our LGHS archives.  You can tour the house and also visit the delightful Parsonage Museums, opposite the Lee House at the Treganza Heritage Park at 3205 Olive Street, plenty of free parking!
 
Its all free, though donations are most welcome. – see you there!
