The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation (GQHF) is housed in the historic district's oldest standing structure, the Davis-Horton House (1850). As the steward of the Gaslamp Quarter's architecture, culture and history, GQHF operates the house as the Gaslamp Museum to share information about San Diego's early history through exhibitions, tours of the house, and guided tours of the Gaslamp neighborhood, Tuesday – Saturday.

There is a supernatural component to the Davis-Horton House, and niche tours for those interested in paranormal investigations are available Friday evenings with an experienced docent (the Gaslamp and Ghosts Walking Tour), and extended two-hour paranormal investigations once a month with San Diego Ghost Hunters, a reputable outside team of researchers. Please visit for all GQHF program details.
