OLD TOWN STATE HISTORIC PARK

After Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821, many retired soldiers created what is now Old Town, laying their homes and businesses around the plaza in typical Spanish style. Through trade with Boston, the town began to prosper. After a fire in 1872 destroyed much of the commercial center, San Diego moved to a “New Town” closer to the bay. Today, you can explore the preserved and restored structures of San Diego’s pioneer families.
