BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT:

The La Jolla Historical Society (LJHS) is where the past has a conversation with the present, according to Executive Director Heath Fox. The non-profit was created in 1964 and is housed in three historic buildings on the corner of Prospect Street and Eads Avenue. The 1904 Wisteria Cottage (formerly John Cole's Bookstore) houses the museum gallery space; the 1909 cottage serves as offices and provides public research space; and the 1916 carriage house/garage has been retrofitted to store LJHS' archival collection. The campus is characterized by lots of rounded-rock walls — all hauled up from the beach below.
