I have just learned that Old Town was known as Alta California before California was adopted as a state in 1850. People had to lug water and goods several miles and back, using the La Playa Trail. Mr. Horton came to town and quickly began establishing a New Town, Downtown. This location provided much more convenience and by 1871, county records were relocated Downtown as well. I had no idea that Horton Plaza was such a monumental part of the development of Downtown, San Diego, as I know it.
