Bankers Hill Historic Walking Tour 9AM
October 25 @ 9:00 am
This walking tour of Bankers Hill will observe various architectural styles, including Craftsman, classic Gill, Modernism, Spanish Revival, Tudor Revival, Colonial Revival, Prairie style, and more in one of San Diego’s most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods. Bankers Hill was first developed in the late Victorian period and, as it grew into the 20th century some of San Diego’s first families and community leaders chose to live here. Because of this influx of wealth coinciding with a flourish of master architects working in San Diego at that time, today we have significant works by Irving Gill, William S. Hebbard, Frank Mead, Richard Requa, Emmor Brooke Weaver, Hazel Wood Waterman, the Quayle Brothers, William Templeton Johnson, and many lesser known, but talented builders, as well as landscape design by horticulturalists such as the renowned Kate Sessions.
