Monterey Garden Now Open


One of Monterey County’s historic horticultural treasures will be on display during this holiday weekend, as work begins to rediscover its unique, original qualities. The Arizona Garden was designed and installed in the early 1880s as a feature of the luxurious new Hotel del Monte, which was built to attract passengers for the just-completed transcontinental railroad.

This colorized postcard showing the Arizona Garden was sent out by Hotel Del Monte sometime around 1890. (SPECIAL COLLECTIONS AND ARCHIVES, DUDLEY KNOX LIBRARY, NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL)
