WELCOME CENTER

(opening in 2016)

Visitors will learn about the Presidio from its early years near the Kumeyaay village of Kosa’aay and the San Diego River to the establishment of the Royal Presidio and the Mission San Diego de Alcalá (1769). The Presidio is the birthplace of San Diego and California. The exhibit traces the American period and efforts to preserve the Presidio by George Marston, who created the San Diego Historical Society in 1928.

SAN DIEGO RIVER VIEW

Located on the northeast terrace exterior, the vantage point offers sweeping views of San Diego and Mission Valley. The interpretive panels explore and interpret the historic role that the San Diego River has played in the development of our region. The exhibit uses images from the History Center’s Historic Photograph Collection and features a stunning panorama of the San Diego River and Mission Valley from the Serra Museum’s iconic tower.
