About
San Diego's William Heath Davis House is the oldest surviving structure in San Diego. It was one of the first houses built in 1850 in the New Town.

The house is a well-preserved example of a pre-framed lumber "salt box" family home from the East Coast. It was shipped to California by boat around Cape Horn.

In 1873, the home became a county hospital for the care of the sick and dying. The spirit of an unknown Victorian is rumored to reside there to this day.

The museum has been home to fascinating people, including pre-Civil War West Point graduates and Alonzo Horton, who many consider the founder of San Diego. Each room is decorated to represent different eras in the life of the house and its former inhabitants.
