Her-Story

Pioneers of San Diego

View the early days of American settlement in San Diego through the eyes (and words) of six intrepid women pioneers who share their unique perspectives of their new home in their writings.

Their accounts include stories of life in Old Town; parties at Horton House; visiting La Jolla Cove, the Hotel Del Coronado, and the Sweetwater River; and the new cultures and wildlife they encountered. These early female pioneers provide a glimpse into the small, dusty town San Diego once was and invite you to imagine their reality.
