South Mission Hills Walking Tour Hosted by Mission Hills Heritage

| April 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

A craftsman home with Colonial Revival influence is included in the Mission Hills Heritage walking tour.

Historic mansions, a legendary evangelist’s Spanish Revival domicile and post World War II ranch homes are part of the potpourri of architectural styles to be explored on the first-ever walking tour focusing on South Mission Hills.

Sponsored by Mission Hills Heritage (MHH), the event is slated for Saturday, April 13, from 1 to 4 p.m.

“We’ll be showing homes built by such important San Diego architects as William Templeton Johnson and Richard Requa and get to see many wonderfully preserved Craftsman and Spanish Eclectic homes of yesteryear,” said Barry Hager, MHH Board Chairman.

“And there’s an extra dividend,” Hager said. “Some of the best views in Mission Hills are in South Mission Hills.”

Tickets are $10 for MHH members and $15 for non-members, and may be purchased at the starting location on Hawk Street between University and Bush Streets. A new tour leaves every 15 minutes.

Each tour lasts between 60 to 90 minutes and docents stop frequently to talk about the homes along the way and the colorful people who lived there. Refresments are served at the end of the tour.

Please mark the date on your calendar. The walking tour is on the same day Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO) is conducting a morning walking tour of North Mission Hills. We welcome SOHO attendees to join the MHH afternoon tour as well.

Mission Hills Heritage is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization established to protect and preserve the character and charm of the historic Mission Hills Community. For information, visit or phone (619) 497-1193.
