The Encinitas Preservation Association (EPA) will once again be hosting the historical bus tour on Saturday, September 9 from 9am – 1pm, thanks to a sponsorship from Mike Evans of Sea Coast Exclusive Properties. The tour includes over 50 historical points of interest and scheduled stops at OIivenhain Town Hall, San Dieguito Heritage Museum and a drive through the San Diego Botanic Gardens. The highlight of the tour will be a rare opportunity to tour Bumann Ranch, which was recently featured in Encinitas Magazine. Tour guides on the bus will give a brief history or story about each area. “No matter how long you have lived in Encinitas and think you know all about its history, you will learn something new during this tour,” says Carolyn Cope, President from Encinitas Historical Society and tour director.
Each ticket supports the preservation of Encinitas’ most iconic historical buildings, the Boathouses. The EPA acquired the SS Moonlight and SS Encinitas in 2008 in order to maintain them and make sure they remain in place for future generations.
Sea Coast Exclusive Properties is the EPA’s tour sponsor for a fifth year. Sea Coast, in downtown Encinitas, is a locally owned real estate firm with deep ties and a history of service to the community. “Many of our agents are locals that grew up in Encinitas, with family histories that are a part of the Encinitas story. We are excited to be a small part of preserving our local heritage,” stated Mike Evans, President of Sea Coast Exclusive Properties.
Tickets are $65 each including lunch at the iconic 1883 one room schoolhouse. They may be purchased through www.eventbrite.com. The tour will depart from the 1883 School House at F ST and 4th St at 9am and return at 12pm. Parking will be at Pacific View. Please enter at 390 West F St. Lunch will be served upon return. The 1883 School House will be open for viewing following the tour.
