Teachers Training Annex #1

Teachers Training Annex #1In University Heights, the 1910 Teachers Training Annex #1 is listed on the National Register and stands out as a prominent, distinctive landmark. It's the last remaining building from the 1897 San Diego State Normal School campus, the forerunner of San Diego State University. The San Diego Unified School District, which now owns the building, has willfully allowed this superb Italian Renaissance Revival-style beauty to deteriorate visibly for years, despite concerted community-based proposals for its preservation and adaptive reuse. For now, the building is being misused for records storage, when it could be a handsome neighborhood library, foreign language school, or art studios, or any number of other ideas that have been put forward.
