WHO WE ARE
Through education, advocacy, and stewardship SOHO's mission is to preserve, promote and support preservation of the architectural, cultural and historical links and landmarks that contribute to the community identity, depth and character of our region.
The Whaley House is a classic example of mid-nineteenth century Greek Revival architecture, formally dedicated as a historic house museum on May 25, 1960 and has been open to the public ever since; it is one of southern California's most popular visitor destinations. Over 125,000 people visit the house annually, with guests traveling from across the globe to experience this world-renowned museum. It is owned by the County of San Diego and managed and operated by Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO), a non-profit advocacy organization, that has lead the community as a powerful catalyst for historic preservation by raising awareness and appreciation of our region's architectural and cultural heritage since 1969.
SOHO operates and oversees the property at the corner of San Diego Avenue & Harney Street in Old Town San Diego for the County of San Diego, which includes
