Heritage Square

"On October 25, 1980, the City of National City and the Community Development Commission of the City of National City formally dedicated the Frank A. Kimball House which is a part of Heritage Square. Heritage Square is located between 9th Street and Plaza Blvd. along "A" Avenue in National City. On the easterly side of "A" Avenue is the Kimball House, the Elizur-Steele-Crandall-Ennis House, and the Proctor House. On the westerly side of "A" Avenue is Brick Row, a ten unit row house which was built by the Kimball Brothers and is on the National REgister of Historic Places. The street in front of these houses was reconstructed to visually coordinate with these historic buildings." (quote from Kile Morgan, Heritage Square, published 1980)
