Heritage Village Makeover Now Complete
Back in November of 2010, I wrote a post about the transformation and makeover of Heritage Village that was underway. Almost a full year later, I thought it would be would nice to show you what that makeover looks like with a few of the before and after Photos.
Heritage Park's nineteenth century Victorian Homes were transformed from a Park to an enclave of hotel guest rooms as part of a multi-million dollar restoration.
Heritage Park was created to preserve a number of century old structures that were threatened by demolition when the post WWII expansion of downtown San Diego started.
With the help of matching federal funds, San Diego county purchased the current 7.8 parcel of land adjacent to Old Town in 1971. Seven buildings were moved from various parts of downtown and the Banker's Hill area of Hillcrest from 1971 through 1982.
Everything has a season and Heritage Park provides a new attraction for guests and visitors to San Diego. Thankfully the visionaries of yesterday saved these historic structures and now will see these marvelous old homes be able to create new memories. May they live on for yet another century.
The Christiam House Built 1889
Sherman - Gilbert House 1887
Burton House 1893
Bushy Head House 1887
All in all I love the new color palette and I think the City of San Diego did a wonderful job with this transformation.
