Old Town Irvine
California State Historic Landmark 1004
#1004 Old Town Irvine
The townsite began in 1887 with the arrival of the A T & S F RR. James
Irvine II chose this site to be the shipping center for crops grown on the Irvine ranch, due to
its high elevation. Original buildings remaining include the bean shed (1895), bulk storage
warehouse (1949), blacksmith shop (1912), garage (1929), tenant farmhouse (1897), general
store (1912), and hotel (1913). The hotel and store were moved from across Sand Canyon Avenue
Sand Canyon Ave and Burt Rd, Irvine.
