666 Villa Montezuma
Built upon a hill, it has two stories, with a partial basement with an authentic, recreated turn of the century kitchen, multipurpose room and storage areas. On the south side of the mansion, one finds the tower room, complete with an Arabesque dome, which can be found via a staircase on the 2nd floor. It was Shepard's study as it had a magnificent, panoramic view from San Diego to Point Loma and south to Mexico, a source of inspiration for Shepard's creative composing and writing.
Floors throughout the mansion were made of polished fir, which were covered with Turkish and Persian rugs when Jesse lived there. The bottom half of the walls are made of polished redwood and walnut, while wallpaper such as pink fleur-de-lis designs enhance the top part of the walls. Ceilings have silvery gray to white Lincrusta Walton . There are many art glass windows on the exterior walls and some are hung over several interior doorways, used as transoms. There are 5 tile-faced fireplaces throughout the mansion.
The main floor has an entry hall, a reception room, a magnificent music room which takes up the entire east side of the mansion, the red room, a drawing room, a library, a dressing room, a blue room and a dining room.
The second floor was and is used as an art gallery and museum.
The population of San Diego began to boom after the railroad was built into San Diego in 1885, swelling in population from 5,000 to 40,000! In an effort to loose its frontier town image, a push was made to bring culture and learning institutions to San Diego. Schools, universities and opera / concert halls were established. Harr Wagner, the editor of the San Francisco literary magazine and his circle of poets, painters and musicians were persuaded to leave cold, rainy San Francisco and settle in the lovely town of San Diego.
One of his artistic friends was opera singer, musician, composer and author Jesse Shepard moved into town and built his Villa Montezuma in 1887, just the way he wanted it, as he was also gifted in knowing Victorian art decorum and design. He gave his ideas to an architectural firm,Comstock & Trotche,whose gifted designer team put Shepard's ideas to work to create this crown jewel of Victorian Architecture. Comstock & Trotche designed most of the notable homes, commercial and civic buildings which were built in San Diego big growth period in the 1880's.
After Jesse Shepard returned to live in Europe, after being eventually shunned by San Diego's cultured community due to his activities explained below, the Via Montezuma passed through many owners throughout the years and was used as a boarding house during World War 2. While the owners did their best to upkeep the interior, the structure itself began looking kind of funky and a little rundown, in need of major renovation.
HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS:
1) Jesse Shepard was a spiritualist as well as a talented musician, singer and author. Jesse held musical seances in a special room located in the very heart of the mansion. His favorite past time was frowned upon by San Diego's high society causing him to be ignored and shunned so much that he left his beloved mansion and moved back to Europe. Imagine his joy when his Villa Montezuma was renovated and restored to his original ideas!!!!!
2) One of Shepard's servants was tormented by grief when his wife died, so he committed suicide by hanging himself in the mansion's tower.
1) Jesse Shepard, by using his voice to simulate an entire orchestra, summoned up entities to help him play music on his piano. He called up spirits of Chopin and Mozart, having one play his right hand while the other would play the other hand on the piano.
a) A strong presence is felt today by many in the room where Jesse Shepard called up musical entities. Many think Jesse Shepard has returned to the place where he loved to be while alive, communing with the masters.
b) Visitors have heard piano music coming from the locked seance room.
2) A sad, mournful apparition is seen peering through the window of the cupola.
Two entities inhabit Via Montezuma. Jesse Shepard is home again, and a tormented entity found that suicide didn't solve anything, so he continues to stick around and peek at the life he willingly gave up through an emotional action.
Point Loma Light House @ Cabrillo National Monument
The Old Point Loma Lighthouse stood watch over the entrance to San Diego Bay for 36 years. At dusk on November 15, 1855, the light keeper climbed the winding stairs and lit the light for the first time. What seemed to be a good location 422 feet above sea level, however, had a serious flaw. Fog and low clouds often obscured the light. On March 23, 1891, the light was extinguished and the keeper moved to a new lighthouse location closer to the water at the tip of the Point.
Today, the Old Point Loma Lighthouse still stands watch over San Diego, sentinel to a vanished past. The National Park Service has refurbished the interior to its historic 1880s appearance - a reminder of a bygone era. Ranger-led talks, displays, and brochures are available to explain the lighthouse’s interesting past.
The Old Point Loma Lighthouse is a reminder of simpler times - of sailing ships and oil lamps and the men and women whom day after day faithfully tended the coastal lights that guided mariners. In 1851, a year after California entered the Union, the U.S. Coastal Survey selected the heights of Point Loma for the location of a navigational aid. The crest seemed like the right location: it stood 422 feet above sea level, overlooking the bay and the ocean, and a lighthouse there could serve as both a harbor light and a coastal beacon.
Construction began three years later. Workers carved sandstone from the hillside for walls and salvaged floor tiles from the ruins of an old Spanish fort. A rolled tin roof, a brick tower, and an iron and brass housing for the light topped the squat, thick-walled building. By late summer 1854, the work was done. More than a year passed before the lighting apparatus - a five foot tall 3rd order Fresnel lens, the best available technology - arrived from France and was installed. At dusk on November 15, 1855, the keeper climbed the winding stairs and lit the oil lamp for the first time. In clear weather its light was visible at sea for 25 miles. For the next 36 years, except on foggy nights, it welcomed sailors to San Diego harbor.
The light had only a short life because the seemingly good location concealed a serious flaw: fog and low clouds often obscured the beam. On March 23, 1891, the keeper extinguished the lamp for the last time. Boarding up the lighthouse, he moved his family and belongings into a new light station at the bottom of the hill. Today you can see the "New" Point Loma Lighthouse from the Whale Overlook, 100 yards south of the Old Point Loma Lighthouse.

Schluter-KERDI is a bonded waterproof membrane with limited crack-bridging capabilities. It is made of soft polyethylene, which is covered on both sides with a special fleece webbing to anchor the membrane in the thin-set mortar. Schluter-KERDI was developed as a waterproofing membrane to be used in conjunction with ceramic and stone tile coverings. Tiles can be installed directly on Schluter-KERDI using the thin-bed method. Other trowel-applied covering materials, such as plaster, can also be used. Pre-cut sections of Schluter-KERDI are available for inside and outside corners, as well as for pipe collars. Use Schluter-KERDI-BAND, in widths of 5" (12.5 cm), 7-1/4" (18.5 cm), or 10" (25 cm) to seal butt joints or corner joints. Schluter-KERDI-FLEX, in 5" (12.5 cm) or 10" (25 cm) widths, is used to seal expansion joints or flexible edge joints.
