Learn more about San Diego County's history with host Elsa Sevilla, on SAN DIEGO'S HISTORIC PLACES. This series details the history of San Diego and surrounding areas, explores the region, and certainly touches on California history. Some of the topics and viewer favorites include historic hotels, historic theaters, stagecoach stations, Victorian houses and railroad depots, to name a few.

Host Elsa Sevilla is passionate about history. She travels the county in search of unique, beautiful and grand "Historic Places." The biggest reward for Elsa is when viewers mention they knew of the location, but never knew the history, until they watched SAN DIEGO'S HISTORIC PLACES.

"National City Victorians" - Did you know that National City, at one point, had the largest number of Victorian buildings in the entire county? While many Victorian homes and structures have been lost due to new development and decay, there are about 250 locations still remaining in National City. Join host Elsa Sevilla as she visits four Victorians, on the next episode of SAN DIEGO’S HISTORIC PLACES.

Past episodes of SAN DIEGO'S HISTORIC PLACES are available for online viewing.
