Heritage Square in Oxnard is a quaint collection of restored Victorian homes that are now mainly offices. It is not much visited by either locals or visitors.

I thought this place sounded so cute and looked cute in pictures. And it is. We visited, thinking it would be worth the stop, even though we knew we'd be too early for a Sunday tour (which is from 1-4pm.) We enjoyed walking around the complex by ourselves. Literally. No one was around (though we could hear nice singing coming... More

Very quaint, historic buildings but most were replicas of the real thing. The chapel was very pretty but I don't think I would make the effort to visit the square as it is off the beaten path.

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. They are occupied by businesses so excepting the ones with restaurants it doesn't appear that you can look inside. Still, it... More

Oxnard got one right by saving these old houses and restoring them after moving them to one block called Heritage Square. 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.
