321 Robinson

3 weeks ago Greg and I moved into our new home. Its right in the middle of Hillcrest, walking distance to almost everything you would need. Very city life. The building we moved into is kind of iconic for this city. it reminded me at first glace of a mausoleum, but maybe that's just in my family blood :). I put a picture on Facebook the day we moved in just to show it off, i did not expect so many people to respond and say they have always wondered about that building. My favorite comment was "It's not a scary Freemason castle, then." Since we are now residents in this building i thought i should do some research on it.

First Church of the United Brethren in Christ. 321 Robinson Avenue. This 1912 classic Greek Revival temple is a rare example of granite construction in San Diego. In 1950 the building became a Free Methodist Church. George Thackeray operated an art gallery specializing in Western and Indian art at this location from 1971 to 1988. Conversion to residential units was completed in 2003.
