Old Town Irvine

Irvine History Today  Wednesday, January 20, 2016


Old Town Irvine is the city's own historic district located at Sand Canyon and the 5 Freeway. 

Before Irvine was a large, master-planned city it was the 110,000 acre Irvine Ranch. Old Town Irvine is the collection of preserved buildings that made up the area's crop storage and shipment center. In other words, it was Irvine's first "downtown." 

The week's guest,  Irvine Historical Society docent Mary Susa,  describes the monthly tours that she leads through Old Town Irvine and why its preservation is so important.
