#065 The Whaley House
Built by Thomas Whaley in 1856-57, this is the oldest brick structure in southern California. In addition to being the home of the Whaley family, it served variously as granary, store, court-house, and school and as the town's first theater. Whaley's home was the cultural center of San Diego as well as its most luxurious residence.
