A little history: 

In 1895, the area of the Park was sold to the city of San Diego by its namesake, Alonzo Horton. Originally, the plaza was intended for use by his guests staying t the Horton House Hotel as well as for visitors to the area. Now, with the renovation of Horton Plaza Park, one of San Diego’s oldest civic landmarks, the Historic Irving Gill Fountain, has been restored to its original condition.

Various historical moments took place here from 1800 to present. For instance, on November 2, 1960, then-Senator John F. Kennedy spoke at Horton Plaza to make a last-minute appeal for votes just days before the 1960 Presidential Election!
