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.
