ChronoPoints | McKinney House – La Mesa
ChronoPoints is an initiative at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training dedicated to digitally documenting historically significant mid-century structures and artifacts. Our mission is to record a “life history” through the capture of digital data and by contextualizing it through contemporaneous photographs, documents, and oral histories of individuals associated with the artifact or building.

Laser Scanning

During a laser scanning trip to capture several Mid-Century structures in La Mesa, California, we visited the La Mesa Historical Society.  The society is located in the 1908 McKinney House which is a period furnished (1908-1920) museum and that is a 110-year-old pine tree!  In addition to the period furnished McKinney House, the La Mesa Historical Society holds an expansive archive addressing the full breadth of La Mesa’s heritage.

ChronoPoints would like to thank the La Mesa Historical Society for their permission to scan.
