Walking Tour of the Historic Rancho Santa Fe Village
The historic city of Rancho Santa Fe is located in San Diego County, California. About 30 miles north of San Diego City, it is also situated between the highways I-5 and I-15. In this city, the inspiring life and legacy of architect, Lilian J. Rice lives on in her historic work that still stands today. Most of Rice’s work is built within the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant, the original planned community of the city, and after years of preserving her work and the historic charm of the area, the State of California Historical Resources Commission unanimously approved the Covenant area as California State Historical Landmark #982 on February 3, 1989. Within this walking tour and the city, one can view Rice’s historic buildings and in doing so, take a step back into the early 1900s when the Ranch’s humble beginnings were first blossoming.
