Montalvo Arts Center Tour (Saratoga, CA)
October 12, 2014 @ 10:00 am
Join the MHC Club of the Peninsula for a two-hour guided walking tour of the Mediterranean villa at Montalvo Arts Center, originally built in 1912 for the late San Francisco Mayor and US Senator James Duvall Phelan. You’ll stroll through the estate’s Italianate garden and home, and learn about the senator’s life, his friends, and the arts center. Phelan bequeathed the estate to the State of California as a place to cultivate the arts, a mission that continues today. Please make your reservation soon, as tour spaces are limited.
Note: You’ll be climbing stairs and steep grades, so they suggest wearing sturdy shoes. Remember to bring your picnic, too!
Cost: $10 per person. Your check is your RSVP, due by September 19.
