Annual Women’s History Day Event at Asilomar
March 23 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
California Department of Parks and Recreation
Asilomar Conference Grounds
Located on the Monterey Peninsula in the city of Pacific Grove, Asilomar had its start in 1913 as a young womens’ summer camp and conference facility- an outgrowth of the inspired vision of the resourceful, socially-concerned and committed women of the YWCA (Young Women’s Christian Association). The historic buildings which are still an integral part of the Asilomar grounds, were designed and built by California’s first licensed female architect, Julia Morgan.
Between 1913 and 1928, Julia Morgan designed more the twenty-five buildings for Asilomar including garages and utility buildings. Today, eleven of these buildings survive, many of which are used to this day for the purposes which they were built- for conferences, social spaces, and lodging. Guided and self-guided tour options allow for visitors to learn more about Asilomar and its significance in YWCA history and as the largest collection of Julia Morgan buildings standing in one place.
