Barrio historic district plaqueWe walked through part of the Barrio in Carlsbad this morning on our way to breakfast at our favorite place, Café Elysa.

 

Traffic and parking was a chore today because of the Carlsbad 5000 festivities, so we parked some distance away and did a bit of walking.

 

The Barrio and Carlsbad Village are the 2 earliest neighborhoods in Carlsbad.

 

The Barrio dates back to around 1918. Many of its residents are descendents of those who escaped the Mexican Revolution which began in 1910.  At the center of the Barrio at the corner of Roosevelt and Walnut is Lola’s Seven-Up Market, a neighborhood icon since 1962. Here's a wonderful mural on their wall (not positive who the women are no dubt family).

The Barrio is bordered by the 5 freeway to the east, the RR tracks to the west, Tamarack Avenue to the South, and Oak Avenue to the North, and just a short walk to the heart of Carlsbad Village.
