This event has already passed
The Old Monterey Foundation presents a free lecture by Jill Walker entitled The Restoration and History of the Old Whaling Station in Monterey on Tuesday, October 16, 6pm-7:30pm at Irvine Auditorium in the McCone Building on the campus of MIIS.
Step back in time…and wander into the present. The Junior League of Monterey County invites you to explore its historic headquarters, the Old Whaling Station in Monterey. Discover how the neglected adobe home was lovingly restored over time by the members of the Junior League. Learn about the intriguing, sometimes mysterious history of a building that has evolved over 160 years of personal and business use. From candle light to electricity, outhouses to indoor plumbing, each owner has made unique contributions to the property.
Jill Walker, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist who earned her doctorate from UCLA. She is currently the Training Manager for Monterey County Behavioral Health. Dr. Walker is the Co-Chair of the Junior League of Monterey County’s Heritage Committee, which oversees the management of the Old Whaling Station. For as long as she can remember, she’s loved functional art—old homes, antique cars and estate jewelry. Objects that were part of people’s daily lives and now give a glimpse into a past way of life.
