About this event

The residents of Santa Ana have worked to protect Downtown Santa Ana or "DTSA" and its historic architecture so that today the public can appreciate the tangible history it represents. The district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and several buildings are landmarks. Join our experienced tour guides on this walking tour of DTSA. See a variety of commercial and institutional buildings designed in the finest styles from the 1900s to the 1930s such as Art Deco, Classical Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, and Richardsonian Romanesque, and find out about the active historic preservation issues in the district.

Your guide will be Tim Rush or Phil Bacerra, both board members of Preserve Orange County. Tim is an historian, historic preservation advocate, and real estate executive. A long-time resident of Santa Ana, Tim is the current Chair of the Historic Resources Commission of the City of Santa Ana. Phil Bacerra is a land use consultant and has been active in Santa Ana city affairs for several years, now serving as a City Council Member for Ward 4. Following graduation from USC, Phil worked in historic preservation planning for the City of Los Angeles.
