In 2001, Patti Taylor started the Monday Club Architectural Tour, an event that melds architecture, local history and community pride — qualities inspired by the Monday Club building itself.
The historic San Luis Obispo structure was designed by world-famous architect Julia Morgan in the early 1930s.
Each year, the tour focuses on a different theme. This year’s tour, which will be held Sunday, is entitled “Secrets of Five Spanish Sites,” highlighting historic Mediterranean-style homes in San Luis Obispo.
Tickets are $20 per person and are available from any club member, at the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce, or at the door on the date of the event. Guests may drive themselves or take advantage of Ride-On van shuttles. Free parking is available behind the clubhouse at 1815 Monterey St. For more information, contact the SLO Chamber of Commerce at 781-2670.
Proceeds from the Architectural Tour fund the club’s Tri-Awards Scholarship Program that annually awards six monetary scholarships to graduating local high school seniors.
