Detailed Description:
The Escondido History Center is the stop for Escondido City history. Started in 1956, the Center offers exhibits featuring their collection of Escondido history artifacts, walking tours, history presentations and a museum store. When touring the Center’s buildings, visitors will see the 1888 Santa Fe Depot and exhibits on railroad and city development. There’s a great model train replica of the landscape a passenger from the late 1800s would have seen on a train ride from Oceanside to Escondido in the Center’s complex. Visitors will also see blacksmiths, barns, antique clothing, and the city’s first library.
