Discussion Thomas Larkin House Commentary

"The 120 year old structure is distinguished as one of the earliest examples of Monterey architecture. It was named the Thomas Oliver Larkin State Historical Monument as a tribute to the memory of California's first and only American Consul."

— Monterey's Adobe Heritage. Monterey Savings and Loan Association, 1965.
