|The days when Chula Vista was mostly lemon groves and farms (1880s-1960s) is gone, but important elements in the city's agricultural past are being preserved in a new exhibit at the Chula Vista Heritage Museum. The exhibit, opening on June 5, will present a history of farming in the area, including crops, people, historical farm equipment, artifacts and farming practices.
The exhibit will feature photographs of various aspects of farming and displays will highlight artifacts used on the family farm, and equipment used in the fields and groves.
The Chula Vista Heritage Museum is located at 360 Third Avenue. It is open from noon to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and noon to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. Admission is free.
Some of the photographs displayed at the museum, plus many other photographs featuring Chula Vista history, may be viewed on the library's website at www.chulavistalibrary.com. For more information, contact the library at (619) 691-5069.
