May is National Preservation Month. Communities all around the country are celebrating their unique heritage. Coronado MainStreet, the Historical Association, and the City of Coronado are again celebrating preservation in Coronado, using the national theme "This Place Matters." 

Throughout the month, we will be celebrating historic places that are meaningful in Coronado -  we are fortunate to have many. Some of the activities include a Proclamation from the City Council declaring May as Historic Preservation Month, the distribution of plaques to recent historically designated homes and the Historic Home Tour on Mother’s Day, May 12.

On Thursday May 30, there will be a free Historic Preservation Symposium in the Lecture Hall of the Coronado Historical Association at 1100 Orange Avenue. Light refreshments will be served from 5:30- 6 p.m. and the program will begin at 6 p.m. We are happy to announce the noted architect Ione Stiegler, FAIA, will be returning to give a presentation entitled “Reconstructing the Past: Peeling Back Layers on the Sikes Adobe Farmstead, Warner's Ranch, and Many More Historic Sites." She will discuss preservation as a craft: how professionals put together the puzzle pieces of history and build chronology by peeling back the layers to tell a building's story. 

Ms. Stiegler will use examples from her own work at IS Architecture including the Sikes Adobe Farmstead, Warner's Ranch, Georgia Street Bridge, and Mission Beach Boardwalk - which are among the hundreds of historic structures that they have rehabilitated or restored. In addition, associate Planner Tricia Olsen will be describing the City’s Historic Resource Ordinance and the process to apply for Historic Designation and Mills Act tax incentives.
