"Whaley House Museum" Top 5 Page for this destination Old Town San Diego Tip by Yaqui

Old Town San Diego, San Diego: 66 reviews and 186 photos

Established in 1856, it is one of the oldest brick structures in San Diego. Wow, pretty impressive huh? In 1869 it served as a Courthouse for the county. The walls were plaster with crushed seashells made by the Whaley families own klin. It was home of five generations of the Whaley Family and now stands as a voice of San Diegos historical past.
