The Forward House in Bankers Hill. 25th Annual Holiday Lighting Display at The Forward House, built in 1905 for San Diego Mayor John Forward, Sr. Between 5 - 10pm, Nov. 24–Dec. 31, it becomes known as 'Griswold's Christmas House'. Walk by to enjoy holiday lights and Christmas music.

108 Ivy St. 5 blocks West of Balboa Park, 3 blocks South of Laurel.

The Forward House got its ‘moniker’ after it was built in 1905 for John Forward Sr, (Mayor of San Diego 1907-1909), his wife and 7 children. American Security Mortgage acquired the former mayor’s home in 1998, and in that year began the Annual Lighting tradition - adorning the house with tens of thousands of lights celebrating the holiday season.
