13th Annual Home Tour
November 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT
You won’t want to miss out on our 13th Annual Home Tour! This year’s tour homes will showcase design, materials, and craftsmanship of notable local architects and their builders including works from James Bernard, Lawrence Weir, Homer Morehouse, and Ed Heacock. Two unique Mid-Century Modern Adobes, a beautifully restored 1915 Craftsman, as well as Classic and Mid-Century styles will be featured.
The La Mesa Historical Society is proud to associate with San Diego Home & Garden Lifestyle Magazine and Modern San Diego to present our 13th Annual Home Tour, “Modern Mud.” Modern Mud highlights Adobe, Classic, and Mid Century gems in La Mesa’s Eastridge and Mt. Nebo neighborhoods.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the synergy between nature and architectural design in these fantastic La Mesa homes!
