One of San Diego's oldest and best preserved neighborhoods, Mission Hills features historic homes in a variety of styles including Craftsman Bungalows, Prairie Homes, and Spanish and Mission Revival. For over 100 years it has been a thriving residential and commercial community with lush canyons and mature tree-lined streets. Its first home, Villa Orizaba, was built in 1887 and subsequent subdivisions such as the original Mission Hills, Inspiration Heights, Florence Heights and others were developed in the early 20th century. Some of San Diego's finest architects and master builders designed and built homes in the area. The architectural diversity of the neighborhood is one of its finest features today. Mission Hills Heritage works to preserve and protect the character, charm and historic resources of Mission Hills, assuring that development projects harmonize with the established community.
