As San Diego continues to grow, the shrinking inventory of historic homes and public spaces becomes even more important. SAN DIEGO's HISTORIC PLACES, hosted by Elsa Sevilla, shares tales from the past, reigniting the love affair with San Diego's special places.
"Julian" - Find out how the historic town of Julian was founded after the U.S. Civil War and how it survived the Gold Rush of the late 1800s.
You'll want to take a step back in time as we tour the town's historic cemetery, gold mine and talk with the grandson of the town's founder - Drue Bailey. That's on the next episode of SAN DIEGO's HISTORIC PLACES "Julian."
Past episodes of SAN DIEGO's HISTORIC PLACES are available for online viewing.
