Young Historian Program
Young Historian Logo

The Twentynine Palms Historical Society is pleased to announce a program to encourage the youth of Twentynine Palms to become more familiar with our local history. Our area has been a crossroads and melting pot for many cultures throughout time. Exhibits and information at the Old Schoolhouse Museum touch on Native Americans, miners, cattlemen, early pioneer families, and the military. It is a wonderful launch point for young minds.

The requirements for membership into Young Historians give children a well-rounded, fun lesson in that history. Accompanied by an adult, the prospective Young Historian will:

1. Complete the Hunting for History at the Old Schoolhouse Museum.
2. Complete the Mural Tour of Twentynine Palms and visit Veterans Park.
3. Visit the Joshua Tree National Park Visitor Center and walk the Oasis of Mara Nature Trail.
4. On the Old Schoolhouse grounds, walk the Frances Sabol Eco Trail, visit the Old Mining and Hastie Bus Exhibits and describe the Twentynine Palms Historical Society logo to the docent on staff.

Once this mission is complete, each inductee will receive a commemorative T-shirt designating their new status as a Young Historian.
