Alonzo Horton: The Sesquicentennial

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the arrival that would change San Diego’s history forever. On April 17, 1867 Alonzo Horton arrived on a ship from San Francisco and saw in the dusty fields the possibility of a great city along the bay. He soon purchased a large plot of land on which he would tirelessly build New Town San Diego, now downtown San Diego, for the next 42 years. The exhibit “Alonzo Horton: The Sesquicentennial of the Founding of New Town San Diego” chronicles the life of San Diego’s founding father Alonzo Horton and the early growth of New Town San Diego. On view are the Museum’s collections of photos, maps, and ephemera related to Horton. As the only residence of Alonzo Horton still standing in San Diego, the Davis-Horton House is the perfect setting to view the collection of Horton’s life and times. Runs through December 30.
