   January 19, 2-3 pm: “Old Town to New Town”  Join us as the San Diego History Center discusses the transformation of early San Diego. Before it was the second largest city in California, San Diego was a small Mexican pueblo. As the demographics quickly changed with statehood, however, the pueblo’s plaza and adobe buildings, as well as its distance from the waterfront, did not meet the needs of the new population. This presentation explores the geographical shift from Old Town to New Town – as well as the cultural and economic implications of the move.  Click on January: History Center
