For the past 26 years, 100% of St Patrick’s Day ShamROCK San Diego’s profits have benefitted the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation.
Through museum exhibits, walking tours, and educational programs for all ages, the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation has continued sharing the historical charm of downtown San Diego since 1850 and has been able to do so thanks to San Diego shamROCK.
The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation
The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation is the “curator” of the Gaslamp Quarter – a 16 1/2 block area listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Through exhibits, tours, festivals and educational programs for children and adults, the Foundation opens a window to the past by depicting the historical development of downtown San Diego. The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation is the only organization in existence which provides San Diego residents and visitors with the tools, resources and means to learn about and enjoy the vast history of one of the finest historic districts in the United States.
The Foundation operates the oldest standing residence in the Gaslamp Quarter, the William Heath Davis House Museum, a repository of artifacts, photos and archives that we seek to preserve for residents and visitors from throughout the world. To learn more, visit gaslampfoundation.org
