Our Vision Our Mission

The mission of the Rim of the World Historical Society is to promote, collect, and preserve a broad knowledge of mountain history essential to a basic quality of life in an increasingly diverse society.

The vision of the Rim of the World Historical Society is to provide a permanent repository, a museum, in order to foster the education and appreciation of history in our mountain communities, and to enhance public perception of the history and culture of the San Bernardino Mountains for the enjoyment of residents today and for future generations.
