Women of the Gaslamp

Notable Women of the Gaslamp Quarter” 



The Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House is excited to announce its new exhibit “Notable Women of the Gaslamp”.  The exhibit focuses on eight women who shaped the Gaslamp’s history and present, from the ‘first lady’ of New town San Diego in the 1850s Maria de Jesus Estudillo Davis to modern day change marker Dorothy Hom. Learn about the impact of the early professional and entrepreneurial women who are essential pieces of the Gaslamp’s story.

Admission to the exhibit is included with all tours.

In celebration of the the re-opening of our Gallery and “Notable Women” Exhibit, our Historian Sandee Wilhoit will lead a special Notable Women of the Gaslamp Walking Tour highlighting some of the historic buildings with a connection to the women featured in the exhibit.
