Description

The Friends of Heritage Square is a volunteer organization that was established in 1993. The group provides regular tours of the Square and helps interpret the importance of its structures through ongoing research and training. They have recently completed an extensive oral history project with descendants of families who lived in many of the houses, and an educational video. Both projects were funded by grants from the Ventura County Community Foundation. They also support other activities in Heritage Square and Oxnard and can be seen, generally in costume, at the summer concerts, Autumn Home Tours, and the Oxnard Salsa Festival. Funds raised from the Victorian Christmas Home Tour support their on site educational programs for area school children.
