March 30, 2020

The Santa Monica Conservancy will be providing a weekly newsletter while much of our world is shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Each week, we will bring you digital resources related to preservation with the aim of helping you connect with our community and beyond. Sign up here, if you’re not already on our mailing list.

As part of our weekly offerings, we are bringing you Discover the Neighborhood, free digital downloads of our tour brochures and booklets so that you can explore our city from the comfort of your home.

Discover the Neighborhood

Third Street Neighborhood Historic District

2621 2nd Street, built in 1875.

Explore Santa Monica’s first historic district neighborhood, designated in 1990, which protects a high concentration of historic structures exemplifying the early development of Ocean Park. The area preserves many circa-1900 bungalows as well as four structures from the late 1800s, including landmarks like the 1893 Hostetter House as well as what may be the oldest wooden structure in Santa Monica.

Our digital downloads enable you to view architectural and historical highlights of the district and learn about the evolution of the neighborhood from the comfort of your own home. If you do go outside for a walk to view the sites listed, please remember to put six feet of distance between you and others. The latest COVID-19 updates for Santa Monica can be found here. Downloads are free. Donations are welcome and appreciated.
