Great News: Pacifica Lions Club Gifts $200K to Pacifica Historical Society

Thanks to a very generous donation from the Pacifica Lions Club, the Pacifica Historical Society is able to complete the restoration of the Little Brown Church as a History Museum and Event Center.

On Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. the Pacifica Lions Club presented the Pacifica Historical Society a check of $200,000, funds to complete the restoration of the Little Brown Church as a History Museum and Event Center.       

Pacifica residents can thank the Pacifica Historical Society, Pacifica Lions Club, Supervisor Don Horsley, Mayor Nihart and the Pacifica City Council for preserving the history of Pacifica.

The Pacifica Historical Society has been working for years to turn the Little Brown Church into a Pacifica Museum Center to celebrate Pacifica's long and interesting history.

According to its website, Pacifica Historical Society leaders envison that "When renovation is complete, the Little Brown Church will be a highly useful public facility available for a variety of community uses.  At the same time, we will have preserved an irreplaceable link to the past for Pacificans of all ages and a community feature of great interest to visitors as well."

The Pacifica Historical Society opened the doors to the new Pacifica Museum and Event Center at the Little Brown Church over Fog Fest weekend in 2013 for the very first time, showcasing two exhibits. But the doors closed after the weekend since approximately $100,000 was still needed to complete the restoration.

With the gift money from the Pacifica Lions Club, Pacifica Museum and Event Center at the Little Brown Church is slated to open to the public sometime in 2014.
