We’re grateful to the wonderful docents at the San Dieguito Heritage Museum in Encinitas for providing a wonderful learning experience! Students were fascinated with how the Kumeyaay lived off the land, the shanty and how early homesteaders had to toil to farm the land here, and a highlight was seeing Ida Noonan’s actual doll. A fire in 1893 destroyed the Noonan’s home and the doll was the only thing remaining. For more stories and fascinations from our field trip, please ask your child! You may even consider taking a family trip to the heritage museum to learn more. It’s rich with amazing Encinitas history.
