A Brief History Of San Diego

Known as the Father of San Diego, Alonzo Erastuz Horton first arrived stepped foot on the sandy beaches in 1867.  True, he was not the first to do so. However, it is said that he is the most influential San Diego real estate speculator in the history of a city. 

Long before Horton, this coastal area belonged to the early Americans. Originally inhabited by the San Dieguito and Kumeyaay Indians dating back to 9000 B.C. this land was rediscovered 16th century A.D. by Spanish explorer Sebastián Vizcaíno on November 12, 1602, named it San Diego for the patron saint of his flagship, San Diego de Alcalá. While it was not the initial desire for them to colonize this area Mexico eventually colonized Baja California through Northern California. The long history lead to the development of the Spanish mission system which lasted into the 19th century

By 1846, the town of San Diego had settled at the foot of the Presidio Park in an area now known as Old Town, had a population of about 350. During the Mexican American War led to the ceding of San Diego to the United States. Since then, San Diego has been one of the United States most prized cities, home to each branch of the military, a successful trade port, and has experienced an ever-growing real estate boom. 

The economic prosperity, breathtaking landscape and unbeatable weather has made it one of the most desired cities to live in America.
