This event is in the past
July 13 12:00pm – 2:00pm, 2024

The PRC will be open for free, in-person tours on Wednesday, July 4, Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14 AND Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28 from noon to 2 p.m. 

Come by for a free tour, no reservations required! Explore the last intact shotgun house in Santa Monica, which now serves as an award-winning Preservation Resource Center for our community.

Built in 1897, the little house features three original rooms where you can explore Santa Monica history and learn about preservation. Look behind the walls and the floor to reveal vintage materials, and see if you can find the one original window in the Shotgun House. Young guests will also enjoy the miniature model house decorated with Victorian-era furnishings that were popular when our shotgun house was first built!

Our friendly and knowledgeable docents will share information about what life was like in the early 1900s, how the house was saved and rehabilitated, and answer any questions you may have.

Walk-ups are welcome and reservations are not required.
