In 2017 the Monrovia Legacy Project identified 67 homes still standing that were built before the end of 1887. MOHPG decided to recognize these homes with a special plaque. Consent was obtained from 44 of the homeowners, and the plaques are up! Most have the year 1887 but there is one 1884, one 1885, and two 1886 plaques.
So as you take your daily stroll up and down the streets of Monrovia, keep an eye out for one of these plaques on our oldest houses. The plaques measure 8" x 6" and are easy to spot from the sidewalk.
This is another way MOHPG can say that we have some very special vintage homes in our community!
Oh, and one other thing. Five to seven of these special homes will be featured on the 37th MOHPG Historic Homes Tour on Sunday, May 5, 2019. Details will be posted on this website once they become finalized.
