The Davis house is the oldest surviving structure from San Diego's New Town. It is an example of a prefabricated, "salt-box" style home. Built on the East Coast, shipped around Cape Horn, and assembled in San Diego, The Davis House originally stood on State and Market, but was moved to 11th Avenue, and finally to its present site in 1984. Along with being a residence, it also has served as a county hospital.
