Travel back in time and visit the Knox House Museum, the first commercial building erected in the city; it was constructed just 11 years after the end of the Civil War. This two-story, nine-room structure is a relic from yesteryear, with bright exterior walls that can be seen from a distance. Stay in cheap hotels in El Cajon if you're on a budget but still want to be close to Sophie's Gallery, less than half a mile from Knox House Museum, where local artists display their work.
