We here at Hidden San Diego follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it.

This spot is no longer accessible

Dog-Friendly: No    Kid-Friendly: Yes

Personal Experience: Thanks to one of our readers, we were able to close in a little on the background of this magnificent property.   The building was constructed in 1924 by an unknown architect and/or builder.  SOHO believes this was once part of an elaborate garden, but I believe that it was also part of the homestead as there are multiple stone fireplaces. As you can see, this spot is clean from graffiti and we really would love it to stay that way so it will be part of our members section.

Many others have come forward and said it was once a crematorium. This could be possible considering it is right next to one of the oldest hospitals around.


Loving my new boots 🙂

    Vintage San Diego is discussing this building site right now! Some believe this was a crematorium for unclaimed dead bodies of poor people during an epidemic in San Diego.
