Four Historical Landmarks in La Jolla

 

1.       Green Dragon Colony Site

Built in the 1890’s by Irving Gill, commissioned by Anna Held Heinrich. Something special about this home is the room in the back overlooking the ocean, it was shaped like a boat and became known as “Noah’s Ark”.

 

2.       Mushroom House

Located at Black’s Beach this home was built in 1965 by Dale Naegle. If you want to look at the mushroom house, be prepared for a 2-mile round trip hike!

 

4.       Salk Institute

The Salk institute is an architectural marvel, acclaimed by architecture critics as one of the world's boldest structures. Sitting on the coastal bluffs of La Jolla it rests 350 feet above the Pacific Ocean! 

4.       The George H. Scripps Marine Biological Laboratory

Built by Irving Gill in 1909, this building is the oldest continuously used oceanographic research buildings in the United States.
