The Larkin House Monterey is a National Historic Landmark built with two-story mud adobe brick during Monterey’s Mexican period by Thomas O. Larkin, a New England Yankee merchant who was highly successful and influential in early California politics.

It is the first two-story house in all of California with a fireplace in Monterey. The design combined Spanish Colonial building methods with New England architectural features and originated the popular Monterey Colonial style of architecture. The Larkin House Monterey is both a National and a California Historical Landmark. The park is open May through September from 9:00am to 5:00pm and October through April from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Tour cost: $5
