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.
