Topic of Mission Hills Heritage 9th Annual Lecture Series

by Valerie Lemke

Historians, artists and authors will explore “Spanish Revival and Eclectic Architecture in Mission Hills,” at the Ninth Annual Lecture Series presented by Mission Hills Heritage (MHH) Saturday, January 18.

Talks and displays will focus on the romantic architectural styles and decorative arts popular in homes built in the 1920s and 1930s, and are intended to motivate homeowners’ interest in the preservation and improvement of their historic homes. Romantic Spanish architectural style and ironwork popular in homes built in the 1920s and 1930s will be presented.

Newsman and filmmaker Noah Taflolla will start the talks with “San Diego’s Rich History” and the neighborhoods that contribute to that history. Architectural historian Ron May will present “Spanish Revival and Eclectic Architecture in Mission Hills.” Historic restoration architect Kim Grant will present “Elements of the Spanish Revival/Mission Revival style.” Ron May will also lead a discussion panel of the topic with local architects and historians who will answer questions to close the event.

Artisans at tabletop displays will share their knowledge of caring for and improving vintage homes and demonstrate projects that repair such Spanish style features as historic fireplaces, windows and wrought iron.

The lectures will be presented from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at Francis Parker School, 4201 Randolph Street in Mission Hills. The meeting is $10 for individuals and $15 for two. Refreshments will be served. For information, visit www.MissionHillsHeritage.org.
