A model for adaptive reuse, the Santa Monica Conservancy's Preservation Resource Center showcases an important piece of our city’s history. The Center provides residents and visitors with practical, user-friendly information about historic resources in Santa Monica as well as the methods and benefits of preserving older buildings. An interpretive program has been developed, and docent volunteers welcome, inform, and lead tours through the rehabilitated shotgun house for visitors.

The Santa Monica Conservancy works to promote widespread understanding and appreciation of the cultural, social, economic and environmental benefits of historic preservation. Through educational programs, assistance and advocacy, the Conservancy reinforces the importance of preserving the historic resources of Santa Monica’s unique urban landscape.
