The Escondido Adobe Home tour is a tour of architecturally unique homes in Escondido California. The home tour is produced in collaboration with the Escondido Historical Society and all proceeds go directly to the Historical Society to further the preservation of the unique history of the Escondido region.

Escondido California began as Juan Batista Alvarado’s ranch known as Rincon Del Diablo and was a one of the many land grants issued by Mexico. The land was later acquired by the Escondido Land and Town Company and divided into smaller farms where the area remained an agricultural center for many years. It was during this time in 1888 that some of the first Adobe structures appeared in the Escondido area.

The Escondido area has a rich history of Adobe structure and has the highest concentration of Adobe homes and structures anywhere in the county outside of New Mexico. This is largely due to the proliferation of builders like the Weir Brothers and George Patterson who specialized in Adobe construction and the various other contractors and builders who learned the art of adobe construction and built independently.
