Tecate Depot Mystery Solved

In October of 2003 SOHO posted a reward of $250.00 for anyone who could prove beyond a shadow of a doubt who the architect was on the Tecate Depot and the year of construction.

Two architects were suspects; Eugene Hoffman who has a vast body of work involving John D. Spreckels, the Hotel Del Coronado, etc.; and John Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright who also commanded a great body of work predominately residential. Historians on both sides of the border were stymied on this one. SOHO received many theories but none that could be proven.

San Diego Archeologist Susan Walters was working on an unrelated project when she came upon a San Diego Union article about the Tecate Depot and its architect William H. Wheeler!! Thanks to Susan's sharp eye a major mystery is solved.
