An exciting new event sponsored by Mission Hills Heritage will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2017. The theme, “Craftsman, Then and Now, An Immersion Experience,” will establish a link between the original American Craftsman homes in the first quarter of the 20th century, remodels of originals, and late 20th, early 21st century homes in this historic style. The full day event will include a docent-led one-hour walking tour, a symposium featuring presentations by architectural historian Kiley Wallace, builder Lewis Barber, and a panel discussion. Professional exhibitors with experts on hand will answer your questions on historical designation and the Mills Act as well as appropriate remodeling, décor, and landscaping of the Craftsman period.

The event will take place at Francis Parker Lower School, 4201 Randolph St. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $15 for MHH members and $20 for non-members and include all activities. The timed tours begin at 10 a.m. with start times throughout the day. The symposium runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Exhibit tables will be set up from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m. One of San Diego’s favorite food trucks will be on site from 10 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Later in the afternoon, complimentary refreshments will feature delicious homemade cookies.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.missionhillsheritage.org or on the day of the event beginning at 9:30 am. Because of the extensive schedule of activities, participants are encouraged to visit the MHH website for details, call (619) 497-1192, or email info@missionhillsheritage.org
