The Heart of Gaslamp Quarter

San Diego Trust and Savings Bank was founded by the Sefton family in 1889 and, under their stewardship, served as the city’s most prominent local financial institution until it was sold to First Interstate Bank in 1994. In September 1996, the doors closed after Wells Fargo Bank acquired First Interstate and sold numerous San Diego properties.
