Historical homes in Pacific Grove, CA

My entry to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letters and numbers.

Pacific Grove is known for their Victorian homes and is also called the last hometown. Maybe because of their small town vibe but don’t be fooled, homes are very expensive just like its neighboring towns of Monterey and Carmel.

Most of the Victorian homes are well maintained even though they are humble in size. Many have wooden signs posted at the front to show who first owned the home and when it was built. It is like a badge they display proudly.

This is going to be a quick post as our internet service has been erratic lately, sporadic at best. I have to test its presence in my iPhone first to check if it is connected and then I run to my computer for this blog entry.

Yep, very frustrating indeed especially when you can’t get any newslinks. I bet you when Pacific Grove was first incorporated people went to their community center to get the latest news.

Such is life in this century.

    They are neat walking in a historical town but not feeling like you are walking in old history. Actually they’re funky!

  5. Rather like the idea of posting your house’s date and history on a plaque. It helps being history to life and reminds us how people lived not so long ago.

    I agree Dorothy. I haven’t seen it done before this trip – it gives us a glimpse of a town’s heritage and people becomes more aware of their history rather than being too quick in demolishing them to built a mcmansion in its place.
