About Us

North Shore Beach & Yacht Club

Above is architect Albert Frey's original 1958 rendering of the
North Shore Beach & Yacht Club.


The Mission of the Salton Sea History Museum (SSHM) is two-fold. The museum will spotlight the physical, cultural and natural history of the Salton Sea and surrounding areas. In addition we will promote available options for restoration of the historic Salton Sea that ultimately maintains both the lake and salinity levels.

The SSHM will collect, preserve, record and provide access to its historical collections. Through educational opportunities for both adults and our youth, we hope to instill a sense of pride in regional history with the ultimate goal of support for preservation. We believe this can be attained through exhibits, publications, media, programs and events.

In order to accomplish these goals volunteer support and collaboration with other private and public organizations and agencies is critical. We invite you to contact us if you would like to help make the museum a success. We are looking for oral history, old newspapers from the area including the Salton Seafarer, North Shore News, Desert Barnacle and others, old photographs, memorabilia, artifacts and of course volunteers who would like to help out at the museum. And don't worry about your skill level, we can find a job that suits you.
