Forbes magazine and the New York Times call San Diego's historic North Park neighborhood one of the hippest in the U.S. It is also one of the nation's leading craftsman era bungalow neighborhoods. 
This Saturday, July 11, there will be a guided tour of North Park’s historic Dryden District.  Led by docents from the North Park Historical Society, 30 homes (exteriors only) will be viewed. 

Builder David O. Dryden
David Owen Dryden, a prolific master builder, was busy erecting homes of his design from 1912 thru 1917 in North Park, Mission Hills and Point Loma from 1912 thru 1917.

When visiting North Park, John Brinkmann, popular publisher/editor of American Bungalow Magazine, said “North Park overall has one of the largest inventory of Craftsman era homes in the country.”

To date American Bungalow has published six homes in North Park, most of them built by Dryden, including five on 28th Street between Landis and Kalmia. 

Viewing such well maintained Craftsman bungalows is a treat, especially led by the knowledgeable docents provided by the North Park Historical Society.
