Once home to San Diego’s most pioneering visionaries, the Gaslamp Quarter is considered to be the historic heart of San Diego. It is here where Alonzo Horton lived and worked, where many early town business deals were made and where people came from all over to make this “new town” their home.

Throughout its colorful history, the Gaslamp Quarter has been called many different names and seen many changes. Today’s Gaslamp Quarter offers a dazzling spectacle with 16 ½ blocks of buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
