Old Retreat Area in Pacific Grove, CA
Founded in 1875 as a Methodist Retreat, Pacific Grove’s humble beginnings was as a summer camp full of tented lots where groups of Methodists came to rest, meditate and exchange ideas. The Pacific Grove Retreat as it was called started at the boarder of Monterey and Cannery Row and extended out to about where Congress Ave. is today. These tent lots started close to the water and over time extended up the hill to about where Pine is today. As the years went on, and campers returned year after year, they started to build permanent summer cottages on their lots.
Today, Pacific Grove is known as America’s last hometown with over 1200 historical buildings. It has more Victorian homes per capita than any other city in America!
