Description
This collection contains correspondence, reports, planning documents, and other materials regarding the creation of Heritage Park within Old Town San Diego State Historic Park in the 1970s, as well as files on several other historic sites in San Diego, CA.
Background
Heritage Park is a 7.8 acre historical site dedicated to the preservation of San Diego Victorian heritage. It is located in the northeast part of Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, on the corners of Juan and Harney streets. The park was started by the Save Our Heritage Organization (SOHO) in 1970 when a group of concerned citizens organized to save the Sherman-Gilbert house. Heritage Park now contains seven historic homes, all of which have been moved there from other locations in the city, and which have been renovated and leased to business owners to operate out of.
