September 20, 2016 (La Mesa) - The La Mesa Historical Society, in association with MODERN SAN DIEGO and San Diego Home and Garden, invites you to a showcase of seven hidden jewels, nestled in the hillside of Mt. Helix. The La Mesa Historic Home Tour is set for Saturday, November 5th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

These mid-century modern homes feature designs by famed architects:

-Lloyd Ruocco

-Homer Delawie

-Henry Hester

-John Mortenson

-John Mock*


Distinguished architect John Mock will be present at one of the homes of his design.

Because the tour visits private homes and the nature of the mid-century architecture, this tour is not ADA Compliant.  The event is expected to sellout, so reserve your tickets early to secure your spot in this year's tour.
