Friends of the Powerhouse, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was formed in 2001 by dedicated Del Mar residents who shared a passion for their coastal community. With a mission to preserve historical and architecturally significant properties, promote social welfare, and educate the public, the organization has been quietly making monumental impacts on beach-area amenities for years. Now, with the launching of their new website, Friends of the Powerhouse can share their accomplishments and future projects with the community.

The website delves into the rich history of the original historical powerhouse, highlights the commitment of its founders, and showcases the numerous ways in which the organization supports and promotes preservation. It even offers opportunities for residents to get involved by donating time or funds. To learn more about Friends of the Powerhouse and their projects visit their new website at
