Old Town is a neighborhood of San DiegoCalifornia. It contains 230 acres (93 ha) and is bounded by Interstate 8 on the north, Interstate 5 on the west, Mission Hills on the east and south. It is the oldest settled
area in San Diego and is the site of the first European settlement in
present-day 
California. It contains Old Town San Diego State Historic Park and Presidio Park, both of which are listed on the National Register of Historic
Places
.

Before European contact, the Kumeyaay established the village of Cosoy (Kosa’aay) in the Kumeyaay language), which consisted of thirty to forty
families living in pyramid-shaped housing structures.

The San Diego Presidio and Mission San Diego de
Alcalá
 were founded in 1769 by Gaspar de Portolá and Junípero Serra on a bluff at the western end of the San Diego River valley adjacent to the village of Cosoy
after the villagers had provided resources to the Portolá expedition. The
Presidio and Mission constituted the first Spanish settlement
in Alta California, the
present day state of California. After five years the Mission moved to a
location several miles upriver, while the Presidio on its hill remained the
primary settlement. In the 1820s the town of San Diego grew up at the base of
the bluff, at the site commemorated by Old Town San
Diego State Historic Park
, while the Presidio fell into disrepair.

In 1834 the Mexican government granted
San Diego the status of a pueblo, or chartered town. However, the
population of the town declined so much that in 1838 its pueblo status was
revoked. One problem was the town’s location far from navigable water. All
imports and exports had to be brought ashore in Point Loma and carried several miles over the La Playa Trail to the town

The Casa de Machado y Stewart, an
1830s adobe house in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.

When California was admitted to the
United States in 1850, San Diego (still largely limited to the Old Town area)
was made the county seat of San Diego County, even though the town’s population was only
650.

The Old Town area remained the heart
of the city of San Diego until the 1860s, when a newcomer to San Diego
named Alonzo Horton began
to promote development at the site of present-day Downtown San Diego.
Residents and businesses quickly abandoned “Old Town” for Horton’s
“New Town” because of New Town’s proximity to shipping. In 1871,
government records were moved from Old Town to a new county courthouse in New
Town, and Downtown permanently eclipsed Old Town as the focal point of San
Diego.

In the 1910s, Old Town became one of
the many San Diego neighborhoods connected by the Class 1 streetcars and
an extensive San Diego public transit system that was spurred by the Panama-California
Exposition
 of 1915 and built by John D. Spreckels. These streetcars became a fixture of this
neighborhood until their retirement in 1939.

The Old Town neighborhood has nine
hotels, 32 restaurants and more than 100 specialty shops.
  Old Town San Diego State Historic ParkPresidio Park, and the Mormon Battalion Historic Site. The area also contains Heritage Park, a county park showcasing historic buildings which
were moved to the site from other locations, including several 
Victorian homes and San Diego’s first synagogue, Temple Beth Israel. A major government building
is the District 11 headquarters of 
Caltrans, the California Department of Transportation.

The Old Town Community
Planning Committee advises the city on land use and other issues. The Old Town
San Diego Chamber of Commerce promotes business interests and tourism. Local
service organizations include a Kiwanis club.

The Boosters of Old Town
(BOOT) is a support organization for Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.
Their financial support and assistance helps provide funds for a period attire
clothing bank and for special programming and events such as Ladies Day,
Historic 4th of July, Fiestas Patrias, Holiday in the Park, and descendant
activities. They also operate the BOOT Store in the Robinson-Rose Visitor’s
Center, support the Blacksmith Shop, maintain a history research library, and
publish the “Poppy Paper,” an official monthly newsletter.

The nonprofit Save Our
Heritage Organisation (SOHO) operates two museums in Old Town San Diego: the
Adobe Chapel Museum and the Whaley House Museum.

Every home — big, small, apartment or vacation
home — gets dirty. And while there’s not just one way to clean your living
space, there is a smarter way to get the job done. Take this guided tour of
your home — from the kitchen and bathroom to the bedroom and living areas — to
learn the basic rules of cleaning as well as some tips and short cuts that will
help you clean thoroughly and efficiently, starting now.
 

If your
toilet flushes slowly, the rinse holes under the rim may be clogged with
mineral deposits. (Get a 
refresher on the parts of a toilet.) Use a hand mirror to see the holes under the
rim of the toilet. Bend a coat hanger flat and probe the tip into the holes to
poke out any deposits. You can clean out those clogged holes without ever
getting your hands dirty.

In the kitchen, wiping surfaces, keeping tabs
on the fridge and washing dishes every day will prevent big

messes.

How to remove soap scum: Water spots and soap scum that build up
on glass shower doors can drive you crazy, but try this strange tip: Wet a
dryer sheet and scrub the glass in a circular motion. A milky white film will
form, which can be wiped away using water and a squeegee, paper towels or a
microfiber cloth. The dryer sheet doesn’t need to be new; you can press a dryer
sheet that’s been used for laundry into double duty for this task.

Hair is a particular
issue in bathrooms. In general, hair pickup should be a dry proposition. Start
by vacuuming, sweeping or dry mopping; if you introduce, say, a wet mop to a
hairy floor, you’ll end up with wet strands stuck to the floor. In the sink and
around the toilet bowl, use paper towels or rags to pick up hairs before you
introduce liquid cleansers.

When
bagging up the garbage, open the fridge and eye its contents
. Are there leftovers that have gone bad? Toss them. Has any
produce liquefied in the crisper drawer? Dump it. Are the last few eggs in the
carton about to go off? Make a note to have omelets for dinner, and
congratulate yourself for being mindful of not wasting food.

How to Clean Spills in the Refrigerator: When sticky spills happen in the fridge or pantry, make
short work of cleaning them by making a compress of sorts. Soak a sponge or rag
in very hot water (mind your hands) and wring it so that it’s not dripping.
Then, press it onto the sticky spot until the compress begins to lose its heat.
If the sticky spill has loosened sufficiently, wipe it away; if it’s still
clinging stubbornly, repeat as needed until the substance loosens up, and then
wipe clean. These are just a few helpful tips to make your home sparkle. House cleaning in Old Town is always a real privilege. We love to house clean in Old Town because of the uniqueness of the city.
