One of California's finest examples of the Arts and Crafts movement, the Marston House was constructed in 1905 for George W. Marston and his wife, Anna. As a San Diego civic leader, Marston’s work in historic preservation, conservation, and history is well known. The property was designed and built by the internationally renowned architects William Sterling Hebbard and Irving Gill.

Surrounded by five acres of rolling lawns, manicured formal gardens, and rustic canyon gardens, this 8,500-square-foot home became a house museum in 1987 after the Marston family gifted it to the City of San Diego for the public’s enjoyment.
