In the Spotlight: Hispanic Heritage Month

Monterey, CA

Hispanic Heritage Month has been observed and celebrated since 1968. President Lydon B. Johnson established the celebration as a one week event. It was not until 1988 that President Ronald Reagan extended it to the full 30 days, September 15 to October 15, that we celebrate today.

Today we would like to acknowledge and celebrate the story of the namesake of Monterey. In 1602, Sebastian Vizcaino named Monterey in honor of Gaspar de Zuniga y Acevedo, the Count of Monterrey and Viceroy of New Spain.

But who was the Count of Monterrey? We invite you to travel back in time with us and learn a little about this Spanish nobleman here .
