Encinitas Preservation Association hosts historical bus tour


The Encinitas Preservation Association hosted another historical bus tour on July 19. The tour offered 50 historical points of interest and scheduled stops, including the Old Encinitas School House, San Elijo Lagoon, Olivenhain Town Hall, and the San Dieguito Heritage Museum, plus a drive through the San Diego Botanic Gardens.

The tour highlight was a rare opportunity to tour the Bumann Ranch. Guides on the bus gave a brief history or story about each area.

Each ticket supported the preservation of the Boathouses, which are among Encinitas’ most iconic historical buildings. The EPA acquired the SS Moonlight and SS Encinitas in 2008 in order to maintain them and assure they remain in place for future generations. Photos by McKenzie Images.
