San Diego Union Building.

Mason Street School

Date Built: Circa 1850.Historic Period: American.Restored in 1968.

This building was prefabricated on the east coast of the U.S., brought to San Diego by ship, and reassembled around 1851. “Prefabs” were fairly common during that time period. In 1967, James S. Copley, publisher of the San Diego Union-Tribune, had the building restored to look as it did in 1868, when the first edition of the newspaper came off the press.
