Rediscovering the Historic Mira Mar Restaurant and Hote

October 12, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

PanGIS archaeologist Annemarie Cox’s presentation will include photos and 3D images of artifacts recovered during the Mira Mar Hotel project. The Mira Mar Restaurant in Oceanside 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. It was a popular stop with locals and travelers along the coast road between San Diego and Los Angeles.

“Project excavations near the property last year turned up a host of artifacts from the Mira Mar’s past,” said Cox, who was part of the team doing the dig. “My talk will describe how compliance archaeology can produce collections that are quite revealing.”
