Monterey State Historic Park: Walk Through California's Past

Featuring California's first theatre and the site where the U.S. flag was first raised over the state, this unique urban park is located in the Old Town historic district. Enjoy a guided tour or simply stroll past 17 historic buildings, many of which showcase California's transition from a remote Spanish outpost to an official state. One of the most important Monterey parks, this heritage attraction also features an open-air museum, beautiful gardens and the Custom House, the oldest government building in California.
