Above: Alice Lee home, one of five historic homes on the tour this year

This is a rare opportunity to tour five private historic homes on San Diego's Seventh Avenue. The fabled homes, designed and built for prominent citizens between 1904 and 1913, form one of Southern California's architecturally significant enclaves. Bordering on Balboa Park, the houses are the work of four of San Diego's most acclaimed architects: Irving J. Gill, William Hebbard, Frank Mead and Richard Requa. Representative of the Arts and Crafts movement, these homes are the result of Gill's experimental early modernism and Mead's fascination with the indigenous architecture of the American Southwest and North Africa.
