Lakeside history began around 1887 with the building of the Lakeside Inn. It was built by the El Cajon Land Company and managed by Captain Joseph Smith for its early years. Lakeside was advertised as a place to fish, boat, hunt and relax.
The Lakeside Historical Society was started in 1972 and loves to preserve Lakeside’s great history. In 2004, the Society opened the Lakeside Museum to teach about Lakeside’s past with photos, artifacts and more.
