Visited so far!

Here’s the list of the California Historical Landmarks that I’ve visited so far in my goal to see and report on all the California Historical Landmarks in San Diego County in 2013, as well as ones in other parts of California that I encounter in my travels.

This list is organized by date of visit. To view a list of all the landmarks in San Diego County, sorted by Historical Landmark number, click here.

Unless noted otherwise, all these landmarks use the standard California Historical Landmark Plaque (Some landmarks are designated with private plaques, or do not currently have plaques). Listings in blue are California Historical Landmarks in San Diego County, those in red are historical landmarks outside San Diego County.
