About Us

The Mountain History Museum opened June 2010 in a restored county fire house in Lake Arrowhead. Under the direction of the Rim of the World Historical Society, the museum typically is open on weekends June through October annually. Our exhibits, education programs and special events keep alive the local history for residents and visitors to the scenic area. Museum has not yet opened in 2020 due to Covid 19.

Our Mission

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.

Our Vision

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.
