Teten House Restoration Begins!!!



The Teten House, ready to be moved and the foundation poured.
 

Today, the community came together to celebrate the Teten House and its imminent restoration. Since the City of Encinitas approved our master plan last month, the Teten House construction can proceed. Beggining with a new foundation, the Teten House will also have its roof and porches repaired. Fred Bruns, the president of the board of trustees for the San Dieguito Heritage Museum, was the master of ceremonies, introducing guests and leading the activities. Gladys Teten Shull was on hand. She was born in the Teten House and she told stories of turkeys and life that was very rural in Olivenhain. Dave Oakley has been the head fundraiser and cheer leader for the old house. Without Dave, this project would not have gotten off the ground. Congrats to everyone.

The Teten House was built in 1885 on block 26 in the Colony of Olivenhain. It was originally owned by Theador Pinter and was used as a school house for many of the children the settlers had, since there was no money to build a school. The Teten House was purchased by Fred Teten in 1892 when he moved to Olivenhain from Kansas with his family. Fred Teten moved the house futher up on block 26 and added an additional building to the origincal house to make a family home. The Tetens originally immigrated from Germany and were typical of the many German settlers arriving in Olivenhain at the time. A blacksmith in Kansas, Fred was lured to California by land promoters with the promise of a better life. In Olivenhain, he set up a blacksmith shop and he farmed the Teten property, growing barley, corn, wheat, oats and lima beans. The family also had fruit trees, grape vines and a vegetable garden. All of these were grown without irrigation as Hodges Dam had not been built yet and the only water was from the winter rains. This water was collected in cisterns for the drier parts of the year. Fred and Anna had ten children. Only five of the children survived. One was John Teten who continued farming the land and later raised turkeys. He married Laura Bumann. They had many children including Gladys.

The La Paloma Theatre turns 85! 

After months of exhaustive research of newspaper archives since 1926, the San Dieguito Heritage Museum presents our latest exhibit, La Paloma Theatre at 85. Built in the late 20's the theatre was built to show silent movies and Vaudeville shows. Talking pictures became all the rage shortly after the theatre was completed so sound equipment was quickly added. After talking pictures, Vaudeville went away but the La Paloma was used for community events and plays as well as movies. Come relive the history of the theatre. What is your favorite La Paloma story? 

Thanks to everyone that came and shared the food, fellowship and fun.

    

 

Presbyterians Skip Church, Show Up to Volunteer at the Heritage Museum!

Twenty-three Christians from Solana Beach Presbyterian Church did not go to church on February 24th. They spent Sunday serving by working on projects improving the San Dieguito Heritage Museum. The Bunk House and the old General Store got new wood preserving stain.

The picnic and school learning table’s shade structures got fresh stain as well. Inside, ladies were busy sewing period costumes for docents to wear and for the upcoming Photo Op Costume Closet.

They also learned first hand how the Heritage Museum is bringing history to life with both outdoor and indoor exhibits.They were part of more than 1,500 people who that day put into practice the commandment to Serve by volunteering at non-profits in the North San Diego County area. 
 
There are many opportunities for volunteering at the Heritage Museum. More docents are needed for guiding school children and visitors and Creators' Club members work part-time exciting on exhibit creation. We need help tending the grounds and archiving our history. Always something interesting and helpful to do. The Museum benefits regularly from similar chuch and service clubs that have volunteer days   Groups looking for a one day opportunity of service should contact the Museum Director Will Neblett at SDHeritage.org or by phone at (760) 631-9711. 










THE ENCINITAS HOLIDAY PARADE

        

Tens of thousands turned out to watch perhaps our biggest Holiday Parade yet on December 1st.  This year’s Parade theme was “Stoked for the Holidays,” and we saw many entries go all out, representing Encinitas’ unique character and surf culture.  The competition was tight resulting in a few ties for 2nd and 3rd places.  Great job to all of our entries for making such an effort to put on a show for our spectators!

The Parks and Recreation Department, the Encinitas Holiday Parade Committee and the Parade’s panel of community volunteer judges worked hard to make the parade a success. We hope that you had a great time being a part of it and hope to see you next year.
