SOHO'S ANNUAL HOME TOUR A HIT
SAVE THE DATE—Aficionados of vintage residential architecture please save March 17 & 18 because that’s when SOHO’s annual Historic Home Tour Weekend takes place.
This year Save Our Heritage Organisation showcases early 20th century Bankers Hill homes. In addition, the two-day event offers lectures, walking tours, cocktail party & the Sunday historic home tour.
Outtatowners may take exception with the headline above but if you put all the elements of the SOHO weekend together the overall package makes it the best in the west.
Consider the fact, SOHO docents and management are total professionals in historic home preservation and documentation. The inventory of architectural diversity of early 20th century homes by noted architects and master builders are second to none. According to American Bungalow Magazine, San Diego has one of the largest collections of Arts & Crafts bungalow neighborhoods in the U.S. based on diversity of design and sheer numbers.
March is a splendid month to visit San Diego. No smog, fog or traffic clog.
Plus, the Historic Home Tour Weekend is held adjacent to Balboa Park, one of the finest public parks in America. Balboa Park is surrounded by historic home neighborhoods.
Do the math. All of the above add up to making SOHOs annual Historic Home Tour Weekend the West’s best vintage home weekend & tour.
And for all locals, who’ve always wanted to get into historic preservation, then there’s no time like the present to volunteer. There’s plenty of time to get involved in this year’s big event by contacting SOHO at 619-297-9327 or www.Sohosandiego.org
