“an oasis”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

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.

“Vintage buildings and History”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

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.

“Walk the neighborhood”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

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.

“Historically informative”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

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