Silvergate Bank relocates La Mesa branch

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

Silvergate Bank, a San Diego-based bank specializing in serving small businesses, has reopened its La Mesa branch at a 3,420-square-foot location at 8530 La Mesa Blvd., Suite 300, just west of Jackson Drive. The branch is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The phone number is 460-2265. The bank recently signed a 63-month lease valued at $328,283.
