Teten House to be dedicated Saturday

ENCINITAS — A 130-year-old historical home that was recently restored at the San Dieguito Heritage Museum will be officially dedicated this weekend.

The Teten House, which originally was in Olivenhain, was a former schoolhouse in the mid-1880s before it was bought by Fred Teten, the local blacksmith.

The museum moved it from its former site about nine years ago, when the land it was on was sold, and local man Dave Oakley spearheaded the restoration project. Donors committed more than $100,000 to the project, and County Supervisor Dave Roberts also helped pay for some of the project with a community enhancement grant.

The dedication will take place 2 p.m. Saturday at the museum, 450 Quail Gardens Drive.
