California State Historic Landmark 830
#830 Old Town San Diego
Settled by pensioned soldiers and their families from the Presidio, Old Town grew in the early 1800s into a cluster of adobe houses and garden plots. By 1835, "it was composed of about 40 dark brown looking huts." The Stars and Stripes were first raised over the plaza in 1846 by Marines from the U.S.S. "Cyane".
