The Whaley House

Built by Thomas Whaley in 1856-57, this is the oldest brick structure in Southern California. In addition to being the home of the Whaley family, it served variously as granary, store, court-house and school and as the town’s first theater. Whaley’s home was the cultural center of San Diego as well as its most luxurious residence.

State registered landmark No. 65

Marker placed by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors and the Historical Markers Committee. Erected 1959.
