Powers Plumbing enlisted local historian Allen Hazard to compile a series of self-guided walking tours in historic Mission Hills, which we call Power Walks. See your neighborhood in a brand new light, as Allen shares the history and heritage of Mission Hills.
The funds generated from these Power Walks are used to improve our neighborhood. They also make great gifts for anyone interested in their local community and its history. If you are interested in purchasing a 34 page Power Walks self-guided walking tour booket for just $10, stop by Powers Plumbing, or contact Janet@BestSanDiegoPlumber.com.
Current Community Improvement Goal
Power Walks purchases go towards funding a memorial to be placed at the entrance of Pioneer Park where visitors can reflect for a moment on these hallowed grounds.
Historic Marker (Historic Landmark #5) Proposed Text:
To the south of the row of eucalyptus trees lies the former CALVARY CEMETERY (1875-1960) – This is the final resting place for between 3,000 to 4,000 San Diego pioneers, including the Arguello, Altamirano, Bandini and Machado families and other important early leaders such as Cave Johnson Couts and Father Antonio Ubach.
While the ravages of time and the march of progress may have taken their toll on even our most sacred, hallowed ground, we shall not forget, at least in passing, the tributes we owe to these early San Diego pioneers and their families.
Past Community Improvements
In December 2010, after nine months of selling Power Walks, we were able to raise enough money to replace the plastic bus bench on West Lewis Street near Stephens Street in the business district of Mission Hills with a much nicer metal model.
Not only were we able to improve our neighborhood, but in the process, we made a real connection back to the community. We managed to capture the spirit of cooperation from so many friends and neighbors, and this new bus bench is a testiment to our success.
