Become a Member

You are invited to become a founding member of the Historic Monterey collaborative as we enter a new era!

More than fourteen years ago, Historic Monterey was created as the City of Monterey, Monterey State Historic Park and the Monterey History and Art Association began working towards a seamless interpretation of our rich history. With the support of others, serving as affiliate members, we began the annual two-day History Fest in October, developed the Explore Monterey brochure and online tour, city-wide volunteer training and participated in cell phone tours, national history conferences and heritage tourism promotion at the regional and statewide level.

More recently, we have reviewed our mission and focus. After surveying the business community, non-profits, local agencies and individuals, Historic Monterey has established a new structure where member organizations, and individuals, can participate at an equal level. As part of the re-structuring process, we have developed a new membership program with five organizational or individual membership levels, from $100 to $4,000+ that can be achieved by writing a check, in-kind support, or both.

What does your Historic Monterey membership support?

Most importantly, your individual or organizational membership demonstrates commitment to the success of Historic Monterey. Now, more than ever it is vital that we work together to ensure that Monterey’s rich history will reach, excite, educate and engage visitors and residents.

Won’t you join us? We hope you do!
