Feb. 19, 2015 Highlights of O.B.’s Historic Beach Cottages

American-Gothic-Feb.19, 2015 the OBHS presented Highlights of O.B.’s Historic Beach Cottages: History, Architectural Details and the Mills Act
Featuring members of the Ocean Beach Historical Society board Kathy Blavatt, Jane Gawronski & Tom Gawronski who were happy to present this special program about O.B.’s Historic Beach Cottages, a subject that is near-and-dear to their hearts. All three have local planning board experience and been advocates in preserving our historic structures. Tom and Jane own historic Ocean Beach homes including the famous “Red House”.
Kathy has interviewed cottage owners, collected photos and written about O.B.’s historic homes.
These presenters talked about the importance of the Mills Act , the role the cottages play in the Ocean Beach Community Plan (approved at San Diego City Council 2014), and in retaining our beach town character. Cottage owners were encouraged to talk and show photos of their houses towards the last segment of the program. We learned some great new information from the audience at the program, but what to encourage people to donate records, photos and historical information to the OBHS Archives before these are lost forever.

Also for those that want more information on the Mills Act see our Preservation page.
