To see some of San Diego's historic Victorian architecture, visit Heritage Park, which lies within walking distance of the main tourist area of Old Town State Historic Park. Just off Juan Street is an 8-acre Victorian village that showcases some of San Diego's most beautiful Victorian buildings. Some of the homes date back to the 1880's and include Stick-Eastlake, Queen Anne, and Italianate architectures.
Heritage Park is comprised of seven unique buildings and all have been restored to their original glory. Two of the homes (the Bushyhead House and Christian House) have been made into bed & breakfasts, while the McConaughy House is now a gift shop. Heritage Park also includes San Diego's first synagogue, Temple Beth Israel.
Heritage Park is open daily from 9am - 5pm. Admission is free. Guided tours are held twice a day at 11am and 3pm and lasts about 45 minutes. Guided tours are also free, however donations are greatly appreciated. Check out the Park Office located in the Senlis Cottage for more information regarding tour times and to pick up a park map.
Heritage Park is located at 2454 Heritage Park Row, San Diego CA 92110. Phone: 858-565-3600
