Register for a docent-led virtual tour of our 1897 shotgun house! Built in 1897, our little house at 2520 2nd Street features three original rooms where you can explore Santa Monica history and learn about preservation. Look behind the walls and the floor to reveal vintage materials, and see if you can find the one original window in the Shotgun House.

Our friendly and knowledgeable docents will share information about what life was like in the early 1900s, how the house was saved and rehabilitated, and answer any questions you may have.

We'll send you a Zoom link before your tour. If you have any questions about the tour, please contact us at
