La Jolla Landmarks Week celebrated at 1927 house party

Completed in 1927, the McClintock house on Sierra Mar Drive was one of the largest private investments in La Jolla at the time — both in scale and cost of the project. The house is considered the best-preserved example of architect Herbert Palmer’s trademark use of artistry and handicraft.

Historical-home enthusiasts gathered at the McClintock house March 18 to celebrate La Jolla Landmarks Week 2018. Invitees were given tours of the home and heard a brief presentation about the architect and preservation. The third week in March is La Jolla Landmarks Week, proclaimed by the City of San Diego in 2016 “to celebrate and encourage preservation in La Jolla.”
