Preservation Weekend Wrap Up

SOHO's annual preservation weekend was once again a successful three days of educational and interesting lectures, architectural tours and historic homes. The event drew attention in national magazines for our emphasis on topics not usually covered, such as historic tile and Tiki architecture. For the Home Tour we chose Mission Hills after a 5-year hiatus to celebrate that community's 100th anniversary. With several Mission Hills Heritage board members opening their homes and other community leaders following suit we had, by all accounts, one of the best home tours in years. Two stunning examples of William Templeton Johnson were shown, along with an early example of master architect Wayne McAllister's work, and two of Mission Hills' most beautiful Craftsman homes.
