"We landed at the old wharf, near where the coal bunkers [Santa Fe wharves] now are, and had to wait there an hour for a wagon to come and take us up to San Diego (Old Town). While we were waiting, I walked up to where the court-house now is and looked over the ground. There was nothing there but sage-brush then. I thought San Diego must be a heaven-on-earth, if it was all as fine as that; it seemed to me the best spot for building a city I ever saw." - Alonzo Horton, History of San Diego, 1542 - 1908
