Hillcrest: A Town to Call Home
On the second Tuesday of each month, watch a presentation at 1:00 pm in our Thornton Theater.
Hillcrest, one of San Diego’s earliest neighborhoods, was founded in 1907. Shifting demographics, a changing society, and city growth has led to this neighborhood’s evolution into a vibrant area with a rich past recognized with great pride.
