Robert Miles Parker
Lifetime Achievement

Robert Miles ParkerParker set SOHO in motion by posting a sign that read "Save This House" along with his phone number in front of the Victorian-style Sherman-Gilbert House. In its first three years of existence, SOHO not only saved that 1887 house from threatened demolition but helped create Heritage Park, a Victorian architectural preserve in Old Town owned by the County of San Diego. This leader also had the foresight to propose a downtown historic theater district before redevelopment began scraping away old buildings and he urged owners of buildings in the Gaslamp Quarter to restore and make the most of them. An inspiring leader with an artist's flair, he achieved many daring things those first years. He is being awarded especially for the bold gesture that created SOHO and began its four decades of preserving San Diego's heritage.

With deep appreciation, we honor SOHO's founder Robert Miles Parker with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
