Community Historians are trained volunteers and staff who bring their passion for San Diego history to your community meetings and organizations through informative talks. Our speakers can introduce visitors and tourists to San Diego history or else dive deep into the details of a unique San Diego topic.

Program presentations are illustrated with historic photos and documents from our Research Archives.

On the second Tuesday of each month, watch a Community Historian presentation at 1 pm in our Thornton Theater. Each lecture is free with “Give Forward” admission.

This week’s topic:

San Diego City’s Favorite Park: Set aside as City Park in 1868, today’s Balboa Park has undergone a multitude of changes in its 150 years. Once a series of barren mesas, the park now boasts several well-known gardens and museums. Learn how the park has evolved in this presentation, and discover some of its less famous uses..
