Historical Society to present workshop for homeowners


Have you ever wondered whether or not your home is historic?

If so, the La Jolla Historical Society invites you to a three-hour informational workshop to discover if you own a property worthy of official recognition, 8:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 28, at Wisteria Cottage, 780 Prospect St.

The presenters will include architect Ione Stiegler, architectural historian Diane Kane, and Kelly Stanco, senior planner of the San Diego Historical Resources Board (HRB).

The trio will discuss the City’s designation criteria, how and where to conduct archival research, how to analyze the information you have uncovered, how to write up your findings for City review, and the benefits and responsibilities of historic home ownership.

The workshop will include informational handouts and opportunities to ask questions of the speakers and owners of historic properties who have successfully navigated the process.

Tickets are $15 and $10 for Society members. Register at or (858) 459-5335.
