Digging up the Past series: The Mira Mar Restaurant and Hotel-Whittwood

The Mira Mar Restaurant in Oceanside, popular with locals and travelers alongthe coast road between San Diego and Los Angeles, was originally built in 1887 as
the Couts family home. First converted to a restaurant in the 1930s, it expanded over the decades to include a hotel, coffee shop, and nautical‐themed bar.
Project excavations near the property last year turned up a host of artifacts from the Mira Mar’s past. This lecture, presented by Annemarie Cox, one of the
archaeologists on the project, will describe how compliance archaeology can produce collections that are quite “revealing”.  Tickets available at both libraries.
