El Museo at the Casa de Aguirre
In early 1994, as we began to prepare for the rebuilding of the historic 1853 Casa de Aguirre, we needed to find the original foundations to properly place the building. The archeological dig for those foundations did indeed open the door to the past.  Four years later we had unearthed not only the foundations but had recovered thousands of artifacts from the site that told the wonderful and historically important story of the people who had lived, worked and played here.  The museum at the Casa de Aguirre tells their stories and relates how they had such tremendous impact on the city of San Diego and southern California from 1840 to 1870.

When you visit the rest of the Old Town State Park, you and your family will become fascinated with the significance this historic area holds in the history of our country.
