1. Horton Grand - Kahle Saddlery – 1886 Marker
Inscription.  San Diego’s oldest Victorian hotel, the Grand Hotel was renamed the Hotel Horton in 1907, and is now the Horton Grand. In 1981, the Horton and the Kahle Saddlery, both located at different sites and slated for demolition, were disassembled, moved here, and restored. They were reopened side by side in 1986. The facelift restored the oak staircase of the Horton, the Saddlery’s stained glass windows, and the bay windows of both.
 
Erected by Gaslamp Quarter. (Marker Number 93.)
