Gaslamp Museum at the William Heath Davis House
Gaslamp Museum at the William Heath Davis House Review
The oldest wooden house in San Diego houses the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation, the district's curator. Before developer Alonzo Horton came to town, Davis, a prominent San Franciscan, had made an unsuccessful attempt to develop the waterfront area. In 1850 he had this prefab saltbox-style house, built in Maine, shipped around Cape Horn and assembled in San Diego (it originally stood at State and Market streets). Regularly scheduled ninety-minute walking tours of the historic district leave from the house on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 11 am and cost $15. If you can't time your visit with the tour, a self-guided tour map is available for $2.
