Casa del Prado
|Photo by Mark Nielsen
With its flamboyant decoration, it's easy to see why the Casa del Prado has endured. The Spanish-Colonial baroque styled temporary 1915s Pan American Exposition building escaped the wrecking ball more than once during its half century of existence. Over the years the building has housed the county fair for over a decade, doubled as a sailor's barracks during World War I, home to the Red Cross during World War II, and also housed the San Diego library.
