May 6th, 2018
Monrovia, CA
36th Annual Home Tour
Each year on the first Sunday in May, MOHPG sponsors a tour of homes in Monrovia. Five to seven homes, representing the wide variety of vintage structures which helps make Monrovia a desirable place to live, are opened to the public. Over 200 volunteers, many who do not belong to the organization, work many hours to make the tour a success, This is MOHPG’s primary fundraiser of the year.
Visitors from outside the immediate area are delighted to discover this “gem” of a city of restored and well-maintained vintage homes. A typical year will find 500-700 “lookie-loos” spending up to six hours (the homes are open from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.) exploring the homes and delving into each house’s unique history.
