Historical Society Looks To Save House Built In 1880s
WILDOMAR (CBSLA.com) — The Wildomar Historical Society is looking for a place to store a home that was built in the 1880′s with the hope of restoration and preservation for future generations.
The 130-year historical home, known as the “Brown” house after the pioneering Brown family, who originally built the home in the 19th century and is considered one of the founding families of WIldomar, currently sits on a lot on Baxter road near the 15 Interstate, fenced off and in poor condition.
Members of the Historical Society are hoping to raise funds for repairs and to hopefully find a permanent property for the home.
“We’re trying to get funds going,” Kristan Lloyd of the Wildomar Historical Society said. “I’m looking behind the scenes to find any kind of reconstruction money, grants to save the house itself. Without property, though, it’s very difficult.”
A developer has reportedly purchased the property with the offer to use the home in their future plans. Without certainty, however, society members are trying to make plans of their own.
The Historical Society and volunteers are looking to the community for support which would allow them to secure and preserve the home.
Anyone who might like to take part in saving the home can contact the Wildomar Historical Society at WildomarHistoricalSociety@gmail.com or by phone at (951) 291-7188.
