Upcoming home tour features historic Rancho Santa Fe Row Houses


The Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society will hold its 2014 Home Tour on Saturday, July 12, from 1 to 4 p.m. This year’s tour will feature the rarely seen, historic Row Houses in the Village of Rancho Santa Fe on Paseo Delicias that date back to the founding community in the mid-1920s.

Of the five Row Houses, four are known to have been designed by Lilian Rice, the architect commissioned by the Santa Fe Land Improvement Company to be in charge of the design of Rancho Santa Fe. The fifth house is also believed to be her design. The Row Houses today stand among Rice’s finest achievements. Two have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

“We are most appreciative of the owners of the Row Houses who are letting us showcase the design and history of these homes that mark signature character of Rancho Santa Fe,” said John Vreeburg, president of the RSF Historical Society.

Event headquarters is at the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society, 6026 La Flecha, Rancho Santa Fe, with early check-in starting at 11 a.m. Tickets are $30 for members, $40 for non-members. To register, send your check, including a list of attendees in your group, to RSFHS, P.O. Box 1, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067.
