Overview

Don Miguel T. de Pedrorena, a man of Spanish descent, relocated to the United States from Madrid, Spain. A man educated at Oxford, he became a leader in social life and public affairs. During the Mexican-American War, Pedrorena served as a captain for the United States military. He buried one of the two remaining cannons from Fort Guijarros underneath his house or in the patio behind the house. After he died, his son-in-law Jose Antonio Altamirano raised his family here. Altamirano relocated his family from their former house next door, which became the first home of the San Diego Union. - Erick Pettersen
