Did you know there is a Victorian village right here in San Diego? Heritage Park, located in Old Town boasts 7 genuine buildings from the 1880s to 1890s.
The goal of the park is to preserve these historic buildings which were threatened with demolition after World War 2.
Victorian style is composed of several subcategories such as Victorian Vernacular, Queen Anne Victorian, and East Lake or Stick Style. A Victorian house can be identified by such features as: a wraparound porch, towers, an asymmetrical shape, textured walls, and vibrant colors.
Although you are not able to enter many of the buildings, the park is free to visit and open daily from sunrise to sunset. Future plans include restoration of the existing buildings and construction of new ones to replicate historic buildings that were lost.
