History Talks! Lecture Series

Join the Gaslamp Museum for a look at how today’s Gaslamp was created by someone who was part of the transformation! Lecturer Bill Keller owned a business in the Gaslamp for many years will give a first hard account of the creation of the Gaslamp we know today.

Downtown San Diego was on a long, slow decline before Horton Plaza opened in 1985.  For most locals the Gaslamp area was a rough no-man's land, home to porn shops and topless joints.  For those who recall the era, the transformation to today's vibrant dining and entertainment district is stunning.  It's historic.  How did it happen?
