Join State Park Interpreters each week to experience untold stories of Old Town San Diego. These free, 15-minute-long talks highlight the underrepresented histories and voices of California’s diverse communities including African-American, indigenous, women, and LGBTQIA+ history. Old Town San Diego State Historic Park’s Hidden History program seeks to tell a more complete history, relevant for all visitors today. Join us to discover San Diego’s hidden past.
