Historical Books

The Whaley House Museum Shop houses a selection of local history books that cannot be beat. The Arcadia Publishing series features books on various San Diego neighborhoods written by local historians; books by Richard Crawford tell of little known news stories from the early days of San Diego; the writings and drawings of George Horatio Derby, who once resided in the Derby-Pendleton House now located on the Whaley House grounds, provide a detailed and humorous look at San Diego in the 1850s; published works by Thomas Whaley himself, as well as his daughter Lillian Whaley, give a first-hand insight into the Whaley Family; and of course the perennial favorite Ramona by Helen Hunt Jackson is still gripping readers as it has for 130 years. Browse our selection and learn more about "California's Oldest Town."
