Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society hosts ‘Rea Mowery Garden’ reception


The Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society honored Rea Mowery for his contributions to the community and the RSF Historical Society at a reception commemorating the “Rea Mowery Garden” May 2 at La Flecha House.

One of the Historical Society’s earliest volunteers, Mowery was instrumental in obtaining the historically significant La Flecha House for the society in 1988 (the La Flecha house is located at 6036 La Flecha in the Village of Rancho Santa Fe).

ln 1989 the Covenant received California historical landmark status for the community as a whole and La Flecha House was recognized as Landmark#1.

Mowery died at the age of 91 last year.
