For almost two centuries, the Cooper Molera Adobe has stood at the center of civic, commercial and social interactions in Downtown Old Monterey, witnessing Monterey's transition from a Mexican capitol to an American city.

After the property was willed to the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1968, the site was restored and operated by California State Parks as part of Monterey State Historic Park for 30 years. Today the National Trust has assumed management of the property to create an innovative shared use operating model.

The complex now houses a museum, bakery, restaurant, and event venue, all surrounding an extensive garden. Interpretation, education, and commerce coexist in historic buildings throughout the grounds. Revenue generated by the businesses on site helps to preserve the property and support the programs and exhibits.
