Recently named among the 20 best surf towns in the world by National Geographic, Encinitas wears its surf history proudly. Located along six miles of Pacific Ocean coastline, Encinitas is an unspoiled reminder of the historic Highway 101 beach culture that thrived in the mid-1900s. In partnership with the City of Encinitas, the Encinitas Historical Society and other local nonprofit organizations, EACEA plans to include programming at PVAA to provide education on the Encinitas and San Diego region’s culture, including the history of the people, the art, architecture, along with the natural resources, agriculture, commerce and other elements that shape the way of life in North County San Diego.
The Pacific View Academy of Arts will be directly adjacent to the Encinitas Historical Society’s 1883 Historic Schoolhouse. At the Schoolhouse you will discover photographs, exhibits, research papers, oral histories and well-informed docents eager to share their passion for this the city of Encinitas and its history. Walk across the original wood floor and imagine yourself back in 1883, when the newly-built one-room schoolhouse was home to the town’s entire population of school age children – all eight of them.
