San Diego's oldest Victorian hotel, the
Grand Hotel was renamed the Hotel Horton in 1907, and is now the Horton Grand. In 1981,
the Horton and Kahle Saddlery, both located at different sites and slated for demolition,
were disassembled, moved here, and restored. They were reopened side by side in 1985. The
facelift restored the oak staircase of the Horton, the Saddlery's stained glass windows,
and the bay windows of both.
