Britt-Scripps Inn

Just down the street and around the corner is another gorgeous Victorian that was built in 1887. This is the Britt-Scripps Inn and it was restored and opened as a hotel in 2005. Again, the house's name comes from its first two owners: Judge Eugene W. Britt, a water-rights lawyer and sold to Edward Scripps, the mogul behind Scripps Howard newspapers and brother of Ellen Browning Scripps, a well known San Diego philanthropist.

I like Victorian style and this one is gorgeous, especially after the photo being enlarged.
