San Diego Historical Landmark #4 is the site of the Presidio of San Diego. Read part one here.
On the grounds where the Presidio of San Diego was existed—nothing but bumps in the landscape now—stands the Junípero Serra Museum, one of the most familiar landmarks in San Diego.
The museum was built in 1928-1929 to house the collection of the San Diego Historical Society (now named the San Diego History Center), which was founded in 1928.
The museum is open only on Saturdays and Sundays.
If you love history, wandering about the museum for a couple of hours is a great way to spend some time.
Although the museum is small, it has lots of great documents, pictures, and archaeological findings.
In a previous post, I mentioned the El Jupiter cannon which I knew was located in the museum:
