New North County Mall Exhibit!

The Escondido History Center is excited to announce that we have a new exhibit at the North County Mall! Titled A Glimpse through the Ages, it is a combination of formerly used photographs with artifacts from two parts of Escondido life; education and the early 1900's. Be sure to visit the 2nd floor, across from Bath and Body Works to check it out!
