    Monterey State Historic Park is a collection of significant historic houses and buildings interspersed throughout Old Monterey. The inside of many historic adobes can ONLY be viewed with a State Park Guide. Tour information and tour tickets may be obtained at Pacific House Museum – a great way to start your discovery of Monterey.

    Step into the past on the “Monterey Walking Path of History” and view the site where Spanish explorers first landed in Monterey in 1602. See one of the nation’s last remaining whalebone sidewalks. Walk the same streets that famed author Robert Louis Stevenson walked in 1879. Explore this two-mile path and discover some of California’s most historic homes, buildings and beautiful gardens along the way.

    Monterey served as California's capital under Spanish, Mexican and U.S. military rule. The U.S. flag was first officially raised in California here on July 7, 1846, bringing 600,000 square miles of land to the United States.

    Monterey’s Path of History can be entered at any point. Just follow the yellow-tiled markers and discover Monterey State Historic Park, an area that preserves and interprets places and objects of statewide historic significance. Twelve buildings, including the Custom House, the oldest government building in California, and several residences (now house museums with guided tours), are all part of Monterey’s 55 Path of History sites.

    For more information call the Monterey State Historic Park office (831) 649-7118, located at 20 Custom House Plaza.
