On the Restoration of the Cooper-Molera Adobe

Course Description:

In 1827, Captain John Cooper and his wife Encarnacion Vallejo built their home on a busy corner in Monterey. Over the next 40 years, they raised their family there and witnessed the transition of California from a Mexican province to part of the United States. Come meet the people who lived and worked there, and then follow the property's transformation, from its donation to the National Trust for Historic Preservation in the 1970s to its most recent transformation as a shared-use property.
