Historical Landmark

 

Built in 1887, the Britt House, named after its first inhabitants, was then the most expensive home in San Diego at a cost of three thousand dollars. The two structures in back were originally used as a stable for horse and buggy. Eugene Britt, a prominent attorney and judge, lived in the manor with his wife Harriet until 1898 when the residence was sold to E.W. Scripps, owner of local newspapers and known to be the first to practice cloth bookbinding. The residence exchanged hands many times over the century until 2005 when it went through a major restoration, and was repurposed as the Britt Scripps Inn for a reported cost of six million. The property boasts all of its original doors, wood windows, paneling and casing. Only the floors were replaced. It operated as an inn until 2017 when it was transformed into the Britt Scripps Manor.

In 1971, the property was designated as San Diego Landmark 52. Prospective clients may schedule a tour, and see how the Britt Scripps Manor both maintains historical authenticity and exudes the freshness and fascination fit for the most progressive of celebrations.

Please note: Britt Scripps Manor does not have open operating hours, but does offer tours for prospective clients by appointment.
