Temecula Valley Museum

Founded by Sam Hasson, Nancy (Hicks) Maurice, and Tony Tobin, The Temecula Valley Museum has been a local attraction since 1985. The goal of the museum is to accurately portray the stories of the Temecula Valley’s past and present through dynamic, fun, and exciting exhibits appealing to both local family audiences and tourists.

Over the nearly 40 years they traveled the country, Tony Tobin and his wife Mildred developed a passion for collecting historical objects. Tobin noted that when his children were young they frequently asked questions about life when he was a boy. He felt that through preserving early household, farming, and other artifacts, these items could be used to help younger generations understand what life was like in the early 20th century.

For a number of years Tobin maintained an exhibit of historical objects and old western building facades at the Woodchuck RV Resort he and Mildred ran from 1956 to 1977. As the collection grew Tobin continued to add more material, he envisioned opening a museum to display his collections. The dream was realized in 1985 when he, along with Sam Hasson and Nancy Maurice, formed a museum committee and secured a space for the collections. Additional donations were and continue to be made by people in the community. The museum lobby has been named in honor of Tony and Mildred Tobin. Wikipedia
