Old Town: A Little San Diego History

Sean's third grade class

Old Town State Historic Park marks the birthplace of the city of San Diego. The original mission and presidio were nearby; the town developed as retired soldiers and settlers built homes here.

Old Town today depicts early California life during the Mexican and early American periods, 1821-1872. There are some really good Mexican restaurants there too.

California history is a significant topic in third and fourth grade. Last Thursday Sean's third grade class went on a walking tour of Old Town in San Diego and I was one of the moms that accompanied the class.

We missed the typical third grade experience with Steven, it's fun doing third grade with Sean.
