The 1895 Cook Book By The Ladies’ Aid of The First Congregational Church

Summary of the Collection:   This cook book, a compilation of recipes from some of the original pioneers of the Perris Valley, presents a unique look into early housekeeping and cooking in the area at the time.

It is presented in two different digitized formats on this website: as a complete edition via our digitized portfolio format; and as individual “chapters.”

City Incorporation Document

Summary of the Document:   The document text provided is from the original document recording the city of Perris’s incorporation in 1911.  

Although the history of Perris has long shown the date of incorporation to be May 26, 1911, this official document filed with the state of California clearly notes the actual date of incorporation as April 26, 1911.

E’Laine “Ellie” Clark Perris Indian School Resources Collection

Summary of the Collection:   These materials, the originals of which are held by both the Sherman Indian School Museum in Riverside, California and the National Archives Records Administration – Riverside Branch in Perris, California, have been provided as copies to the Perris Valley Museum Historical Archives by E’Laine “Ellie” Clark, a member of the Lake Elsinore Genealogical Society and a longtime researcher to the Perris Valley Museum Historical Archives.  

These papers have been digitized and presented here to tell the lost story of the Perris Indian School (1893-1904).  For decades – and perhaps decades beyond this point and time – the tale of the school remains a contested point in the history of the Indian boarding schools as to what happened beyond its quickly shuttered – and seemingly forgotten – doors.  The one element that seems so unsettled in the school’s history is to put faces to the most important element of the story – the children who attended the Perris Indian School.  Some of these resources provide the first insight into who attended the school, as well as who worked for the school.
