The Camp Pendleton Historical Society is dedicated to preserving and broadcasting the rich and colorful history of the land that is now Camp Pendleton. Our interests span the entire history of the region, to include prehistoric times, native American culture, the Spanish mission era, the rancho story, and finally, Marine Corps ownership since 1942. We are especially proud of the work we have done to support various historical restoration projects and other historical programs aboard the Base, having raised and contributed some $50,000 for these efforts since 2005.

For as little as $50 a year ($35 for active duty military) you can be a member of the Camp Pendleton Historical Society and help to preserve the rich and colorful history of Camp Pendleton. Join now! Membership Information
