By Miriam Raftery
November 1, 2021 (El Cajon) – East County Magazine interviewed Rick Hall, president of the El Cajon Historical Society, via Zoom last week regarding the Society’s efforts to preserve local history, funding challenges owed to COVID-19, and encouraged residents, including newcomers from around the world to share their stories as part of the city’s ever-changing history. The interview was also broadcast on our radio show on KNSJ 89.1 FM.
Hall also spoke about his own heritage as a descendant of one of El Cajon’s pioneer families and shared anecdotes from the city’s colorful past.
Donations are needed to help support the Society’s efforts to keep history alive in our region, due to a loss of funds during pandemic lockdowns.

The Historical Society of El Cajon continues to document ancient history as well as the history that is being made today. The organization wants to hear true stories from local residents, including Native Americans, descendants of settlers, immigrants and refugees from around the world to El Cajon.
