Description
The Stevenson House was the location of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson's lodgings when he moved to Monterey, California to court his future wife Fanny Osbourne. During this time he stayed in the French Hotel, now called the Stevenson House. He wrote articles for the local Monterey newspaper that captured the essence of the "Old Pacific Capital." Today, the Stevenson House is dedicated to his legacy, and is known for its lush gardens at the rear of the property. This building is a California Historical Landmark (#352).
