Stagecoach Days: Trades that Shaped the West

Park: Old Town San Diego SHP

As towns developed in the west, so did the need for specialized trades and artisans. Old Town San Diego State Historic Park will present pivotal 19th century trades that helped shape the community of San Diego. See blacksmiths, printers, woodworkers, and more to help you decide what job you would have chosen in the 1800s.

Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, with the support of the Boosters of Old Town and donations from Fiesta de Reyes, is proud to offer these free activities for adults and children of all ages. The park is located on San Diego Avenue and Twiggs Street in San Diego, and is conveniently located next to the Old Town Transit Center, with Coaster, trolley, and MTS bus service. Free parking is available at the CalTrans headquarters, just two blocks away from the park at 4050 Taylor Street.
