Every successful organization has a beginning and it always starts with hard-working leaders. Old Town Irvine is the historic site of humble beginnings.
Originally built in 1913, the Irvine Hotel moved several times to make way for thoroughfare crossing the railroad line and structure is preserved with meticulous care. The Irvine Hotel is one of several historical buildings including the Bean Shed, the lima bean silos, and the original blacksmith's building that is today's Knowlwood restaurant. The Irvine Historical Society has monthly guided tours of the area.
Rich in history, as well as business, family and community traditions, Old Town Irvine offered the start and foundation to grow and prosper the ongoing development of what is now beautiful Orange County, California.
As soon as you walk through the studio door and view the gallery of fine art portraits, you will quickly sense that the experience is one-of-a-kind in hospitality, rich in history and truly experiential.
