Coronado, located just across the bay from Downtown San Diego, is home to the famous Hotel Del Coronado, and renown for a beautiful stretch of beach that attracts many visitors and is a favorite among San Diego locals. Nicknamed the “crowned city,” its modern history goes back to the late 1800s when it was officially incorporated as a city on December 6, 1890. This momentous occasion was not as straightforward as it seems. Coronado’s journey to becoming a city was full of drama that included pesky trees and drunkard saloons. Join us on Wednesday, August 14th at 7 PM as the Coronado Museum’s Executive Director Christine Stokes and Curator of Collection’s Vickie Stone share the story of how Coronado split from San Diego and became its own city.
