Love it, love it love it. The homes are amazing. There is one restaruant, La Dolce Vita, and a wine tasting house. I wish there were more places to eat there, But at Christmas and in the Fall, it's a must see for tours and Oxnard history. Fun

Nice historic buildings which were moved to this location and restored on site. Concerts are sometimes conducted outside in the center of this area. The local business sometimes have private parties.

If you like architecture, you'll enjoy seeing the buildings at Heritage Square. Heritage Square contains (maybe a dozen?) beautifully restored old/historic houses with landscaping and walking paths around them and placards in front of each building explaining their histories.

In the development of Southern California, farms, ranches and orchards were built into 'lots' of houses. In Oxnard some of the original owners homes were moved by heavy truck to one block downtown to preserve the legacy. Then these... More

Nice little square where old houses were moved, renovated and made into restaurants and businesses. Each house has a plack out front that tells its history. Very quaint.

I love having a sweet place like this that indicates that the city cares about its community and its history. It's relaxing. The food at Le Dolce Vita is good.

Heritage Square is set in down town Oxnard. It is made up of old Oxnard homes that were moved to maintain the history of Oxnard. Oxnard was formed around farming and the sugar beet factory that brought in farmers, factory worker and business to meet their buying needs. Docents give the history and back ground of the core homes on... More
