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 the weekends. There is a small fee, but well worth it.

It is worth walking around and seeing the historic buildings on this square. Amazing someone had foresight to move the homes and church to the spot.

Enjoyed seeing the old houses and reading the placards about their histories. A little difficult to find as we parked a few blocks away.

Large victorian houses from the area were moved to this block and are well maintained. Most are offices but a couple are restaurants and one playhouse. Good for an hour of looking. Near downtown. Some good restaurants nearby like Sugar Beets. Close to movie theaters.
