The Marston House is one of California’s best examples of the famous Arts and Crafts movement. It was built in 1905 for one of San Diego’s prominent citizens, George W. Marston, and his wife, Anna. It was designed by internationally known architects, William Sterling Hebbard and Irving Gill. It’s a 8,500 square-foot home with six-bedrooms, seven-baths and 5 acres of lawns and gardens. It became a museum in 1987 when the Marston family gave it to the City of San Diego and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s maintained by Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO).
See rare Irving Gill furniture on display within the Marston House. Gill is one of San Diego’s best known modernist architects. (Remember, he was the architect that built the Marston House.).
