New Book on
Tustin History Available!
The Tustin Area Historical
Society worked with local author Guy Ball
and Arcadia Publishing to produce Images
of America: Tustin, a book of 200
vintage Tustin photos with companion text.
Most of the photos were chosen
from the thousands of images in our extensive
collection. Others came from collections
of local families, the Orange County Archives,
and other groups.
The book is now available at
many stores including Barnes &
Noble, Costco (Tustin stores), Woodward's Ace Hardware, Ivy's Bridge to
Better Health restaurant (Old Town), Acorn
Naturalist, H. Foster & Jackson (Enderle Center),
and a few other local stores.
The Museum also has copies and the
proceeds from books sold go to our various
educational and preservation programs.
If you buy a copy through the
Society, you have the option of having the
author sign and personalize your book. The
museum is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays of each
week from 9 am to 2 pm, and the first and third
Saturdays of the month from noon until 3 pm. Our
location is at 395 El Camino Real at Main St.
